IRWP Upcoming Events for Oct/Nov and New Job Opening!
Have you noticed all the open space that is being developed in our area, and wish there was something you could do to protect your land from a similar fate? Come join us at this event to learn all about land conservation and the multiple different options that are available to landowners, along with the potential benefits and incentives that may be available. Examples of options which will be discussed include: public vs. private, entire properties vs. just a section of a property, easements, fee simple donations, and more. If you've ever been curious about permanent land conservation, this will be the event to attend to ask questions of the experts!

Morning talks will be followed by lunch (free) and a field tour of 3 local sites that have been permanently conserved using different methods discussed in the morning. Free event, RSVP required.
