WE PRIORITIZE LANDOWNERS
AND LAND TRUSTS
Private landowners and land trusts are an integral part of a complete land conservation strategy.
Preserving our planet is as important as ever and P4C supports preserving smart, responsible incentives to encourage private land conservation. We strongly support further regulations to ensure appropriate oversight and transparency, while also encouraging even more private investments to permanently protect valuable and environmentally-sensitive greenspace for future generations.SEE OUR LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS
P4C sees private investment in conservation as an important and effective solution to address competing priorities of business and protecting the environment. Through private conservation efforts and conservation easements, P4C members have successfully conserved hundreds of thousands of acres of land, ensuring our country's habitats and natural resources are preserved for generations to come.SEE MORE P4C CONSERVED PROPERTIES
