In most cases, CLF preserves open lands and creates compatible land uses through the acquisition of conservation easements. Conservation easements are voluntary agreements with landowners to sell or donate development rights to a property. Open space uses such as farming, ranching, or hunting are always allowed. Easements do not, however, provide public access to the property.
Headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Compatible Lands Foundation staff and consultants work throughout the United States with both public and private partners. Collectively, our staff has over 80 years of experience in land conservation and related fields.
