"We are monitored once every year. For us, it is a visit from friends. We go over any improvements we’ve made or any questions we have or they have. We have had no problems with our ranching operation and are very committed to our conservation easements...", Barbara Clark, Rock Creek Rancher
The Five Valleys Land Trust accepts a perpetual responsibility to monitor all of its conservation easement lands to ensure that the purposes of each easement are realized. We visit each property at least once each year and strive to maintain healthy working relationships with easement landowners.
The Five Valleys Land Trust also works collaboratively with interested landowners to develop, implement and monitor voluntary land management practices that enhance the conservation values of the land. Projects include:
* Weed Control
* Restoration Forestry Practices
* Grazing Management Techniques
