Over the last two years, Scenic Rivers Land Trust secured $2.3 million in grants for landowners who want to permanently protect their land. Join us for a breakfast buffet and an overview of the legal and tax framework of conservation easements. Learn about significant income, property, and estate tax benefits that might be available to your clients. Program highlights include updates to a local grant program that provides a per-acre cash incentive for landowners who protect forests and/or plant trees on qualified land. Scenic Rivers is the most active land trust in Anne Arundel County, holding 65 conservation easements that protect well over 2,700 acres.
