 Conservation Easement Update

The Central Coast Land Conservancy is currently working with a landowner on Beaver Creek in Lincoln County. The owner is interested in a conservation easement to conserve and enhance over 200 acres of forest lands so they become older type forests. This would drastically enhance the habitat available for wildlife and assist in protecting the cool clean water flowing from the adjacent Siuslaw National Forest.
 
In addition to securing easements, the Conservancy is also working to enhance the baseline documentation on the easements and properties that we currently hold. The Conservancy has some grant money in hand for this work, but we need additional matching funds to make this happen. Support our stewardship efforts in Tillamook, Lincoln, and Lane Counties by contributing through Donate Now or by check to P.O. Box 1344, Depoe Bay, OR 97341.  All contributions are tax deductible.

Help Assure that Enhanced Tax Benefits for Conservation Easement Donations Become Permanent!

This week the U.S. House passed HR 2807 which makes the enhanced conservation easement tax incentive permanent!  

"Landowners all across Oregon have utilized the federal enhanced conservation easement incentive program. This vital tax incentive program provides private landowners financial support that allows them to conserve the land they love, thereby giving a critical boost to voluntary land conservation in Oregon." 

The House bill had 222 co-sponsors, however, a bigger struggle will come if it reaches the Senate. Please take a moment to contact your representative to express support! For more information visit The Coalition of Oregon Land Trust and checkout the facts

Welcome to the world!

The Central Coast Land Conservancy is keeping our promise to our children that the wild spaces and natural heritage of Oregon’s Central Coast will be passed onto them protected. Recently, Central Coast Land Conservancy's very own board member, Amber, welcomed our newest conservationist. This sweet baby is enjoying the warm summer days with her momma. Thanks to her mother's tireless efforts, and your support, she will be able to create memories of her favorite open spaces for years to come and hopefully pass along these memories to her children one day.
