More About Conserving Land

Land Protection – How Do I Learn More?

  • Conservation Restrictions

    You will not find a list of the Conservation Restrictions held by RGT on this website – simply because they are privately owned. But if you would like to talk with us (or the owners of those lands) about the experience of having a CR, contact us.

  • Land Owned by a Land Trust

    A list of the properties owned by RGT are on this website. Please visit them, or if you would like to tour them with an RGT Board Member, contact us.

  • How do you decide what is best for you and your land?

    It takes time and thought. You need to consider what is special about your property; what your long-term goals for the land have been, what your needs are now, and, finally, if land protection is a way to achieve your goals. A formidable list. If you would like to talk through some of your ideas, contact us.
