The Texas Land Conservancy and Ranch Connection LLC are hosts of a landowner workshop from 1:30-4 p.m. Friday at the Morgan Mill Community Center.

The workshop cost is $10 payable at the door. This workshop will focus on conservation easements, a tool available to help landowners steward and protect their land investment in the long term.

 Conservation easements are one of the most flexible and effective means to protect private property. A conservation easement is a voluntary legal agreement that ensures a property will forever be conserved according to the landowner’s wishes. Each individual agreement is unique, reflecting the special qualities of the land and the conservation goals of the landowner.

 Many landowners are concerned about conserving those special natural features on their family-owned property and maintaining the productivity of their land. Landowners face the challenge of increasing tax burdens associated with land ownership, including the potential impact of estate taxes on their heirs. This seminar is designed to provide farmers, ranchers and other landowners with effective tools and resources to help them deal with the issues inherent in passing family land on to future generations.

 Workshop topics include: Conservation Easement Overview; Income and Estate Tax Considerations and Tax Benefits of Donating a Conservation Easement; and Discussions with Conservation Easement Donors
