Conservation Easements - How We Can Help

In Texas, 95% of land is privately owned. That is almost 160,000,000 acres of privately owned small farms, ranches, forests, and other working lands. However, some of that acreage is city blocks and suburban homes. The trend of urban and suburban development will continue to grow as the entire population of Texas is expected to double by 2050. This swift growth will mean some of these working lands will be at threat of being developed, leaving land values to rapidly rise. Land conservation is one alternative to lower the costs of owning land or prevent some of that private land from becoming developed.

As an accredited land trust, Green Spaces Alliance is working hard to keep South Texas culturally, historically and environmentally unique.
