Protection for Now and Into the Future
A conservation easement enables landowners to permanently protect
their land, assuring them that their property will remain rural, undeveloped and restricting
it from conversion to large-scale subdivisions or industrial/commercial uses.
Donations to the G1FT program are tax deductible and are used to preserve rural lands and waters in Frederick County.
The funds are administered by the Frederick County Conservation Easement Authority. To make a donation please call 540-665-5651 or donate with the button below.
Landowners can still farm, operate bed-and-breakfasts, conduct forestry, and vineyard operations, etc. And of course, landowners
continue to enjoy ownership in their land as long as they desire. When the land is sold or passed to heirs, it will continue to be protected.
