Our Mission

Partnership for Conservation’s mission is to improve and reform current federal conservation easement law and practices to protect the long-term availability and integrity of conservation easement donations for all Americans.

To achieve its mission, P4C supports strengthened appraisal and appraiser requirements, more guidance and clarity within the rules and regulations, and greater transparency of all conservation easement transactions.

Land conservation has never been more important, and the significant conservation achieved through partnerships enables more Americans to participate and protect more lands with both high conservation values and high development potential.

P4C’s goal is to ensure that decision makers and the public are well-informed on the importance of conservation easements and the related federal tax incentive, and to create open and unbiased coordination among stakeholders to maximize conservation for all generations.

At P4C, our mission is to expand conservation easements to keep pace with the continuous need for land conservation and wildlife preservation. More protected land means we can keep a safe 300 feet from larger wildlife!

At P4C, our mission is to expand conservation easements to keep pace with the continuous need for land conservation and wildlife preservation. More protected land means we can keep a safe 300 feet from larger wildlife!Social distancing means avoiding large gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible. While we're at it, let's remember to keep it 300 feet or more for larger wildlife.

As services are limited, the National Park Service continues to urge visitors to:

Check park websites for the most up to date information regarding access.

Pack out everything you bring into a park and always practice Leave No Trace principles.

Park only in designated areas. Follow park regulations.

If you encounter a crowded trail-head or overlook, you're not practicing safe social distancing. Go elsewhere.

If waving to your friend from six feet away, you're doing it right. If you're waving while standing next to a moose, you're not.
