Funded by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), the Coastal Land Legacy Initiative will help advance the conservation of privately-owned working lands in the Gulf Coast region. Extending from June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2018, this program will:
Help private landowners conserve their working lands with an agricultural conservation easement.
Provide information on the benefits of donated and purchased conservation easements and the available resources for each.
Promote the NEED to conserve working lands and how doing so provides critical public benefits, like clean water, abundant food and fiber, clean air, wildlife habitat, and the wide open spaces that all Texans enjoy.
