The CLC prepared the third in a series of conservation easement guides for the Land Trust Alliance (LTA). This guide covers the "outdoor recreation" category of qualifying purposes for tax deductible conservation easements.
In mid-October, CLC attorneys presented workshops at the annual national meeting of the Land Trust Alliance in Portland, Oregon. Bill co-presented the workshop "Conservation Easements in a Changing World - Balancing Flexibility with Permanence." Bill, Andrea, and Jeff, along with Christian Freitag, executive director of our long-standing client Sycamore Land Trust, presented the workshop "Drafting Working Landscape Conservation Easements."
With the legal assistance of CLC attorneys and Clinic interns, Friends of the Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. The Friends' mission is to educate the public about the Patoka River NWF, located in southern Indiana near Oakland City, and to help protect its precious resources.
