Conservation Easement Monitoring & Stewardship

Easement monitoring is the ongoing process of making sure the purpose and restrictions of each individual conservation easement are being upheld. It is a cooperative process between a land trust and the landowner. Per Standard 11 of the Land Trust Alliance Standards and Practices, "the land trust monitors its easement properties regularly, at least annually, in a manner appropriate to the size and restrictions of the property, and keeps documentation (such as reports, updated photographs and maps) of each monitoring activity."
