Conservation

We work with private landowners to craft conservation easements that permanently conserve lands that are crucial wildlife habitat, protect rivers and streams, or contribute to the scenic quality of Sheridan County. We believe that by maintaining the values that make Sheridan County unique and beautiful, we will make a positive impact on the local tourism economy and make sure that this is always a great place to live.


What is a Conservation Easement?

A conservation easement protects certain natural resources and scenic values of a property in perpetuity. Easements provide various of benefits to landowners, future generations and the community. Some easement benefits for landowners may include tax incentives, continued opportunities for traditional ranching uses, and the peace of mind that treasured lands will be protected for generations to come. Communities benefit from the preservation of scenic roads and vistas, improved water and air quality, and the continuance of ranching and agriculture in our communities.
