When you protect land, you leave a legacy for coming generations. You may also be able to reduce your state and federal income tax, estate tax, and/or property tax. There are many ways to protect your land, including donating or selling a conservation easement, donating or selling the property, or doing a bargain sale.
Make a gift in your will
You can create a lasting conservation legacy by naming the Madison Land Conservation Trust as a beneficiary in your will or living trust, life insurance, or retirement account. It’s easy to do and it costs nothing during your lifetime.
