Watershed Land Trust, Inc.
This Nationwide Registry serves many purposes.  If you are aware of a particular property that would either benefit from
a conservation easement, is already under some sort of protection, or should be monitored for possible future protection
then please complete this registry.  Even if the Watershed Land Trust is not the best suited entity for the property you
identify, we probably can help to identify another Land Trust better suited.

The Watershed Land Trust (WLT) Is a nonprofit charitable organization which was formed to hold land in fee simple
and/or conservation easements in perpetuity.  Most Land Trust's mission is to hold vast areas of land typically in large
sections.  The WLT is unique in that its mission and focus is to preserve watersheds, waterways, streams, rivers, lakes,
wetlands, and adjacent (riparian) corridors and green space primarily for the benefit of water quality, ecosystems, and
Open Space.  Such a
Conservation Purpose could be for preservation of fish, wildlife, or plant habitats or ecosystems.  
Often times, these will be mitigation sites or in other words, sites that were created or improved as a result of an adverse
impact elsewhere which will also include the Conservation Purpose of preservation of open space.  If the easement
preserves open space to advance a federal, state, or local governmental conservation policy – for example, it protects
farmland under a state flood control program or to advance the no net loss of wetlands provision under the Clean Water
Act– it may limit public access to the land as long as the limitation does not undermine the purpose of the easement.  If
you have a  potential easement project you wish to discuss, please fill out the registry form below to the best you your
ability and the Executive Director will contact you in the very near future to discuss your options.
