Fred and Dorothy Meyer Nature Preserve, by Dick Miller

Trading for Nature’s Sake

When does a land trust take ownership of land with no conservation value? When we can sell the property and put the proceeds back into conservation.

In 2018, we received a significant land gift. Holladay Properties donated commercial property to the land trust with the knowledge that we would put the property up for sale. We sold the property in late spring, and all proceeds from the land sale will go to protecting high-value natural areas.

Many thanks to Holladay Properties for this generous gift!
