Old Lyme — The Old Lyme Open Space Commission and Old Lyme Land Trust will co-sponsor a land conservation seminar on Saturday, Feb. 22 to help property owners understand their options and plan for the preservation of their land. The seminar will cover information on various land conservation strategies.
“Preserving the Legacy of Your Land” will be presented by Attorney Amy Paterson, the executive director of the Connecticut Land Conservation Council. Paterson advises and guides local land trusts and other land conservation organizations in the long-term protection of the state’s farmland, forests, wildlife habitats, watersheds and wetlands.
Conservation options for property owners will be described, including easements, sale or donation of land, and protecting land in the event of resale. Paterson will also speak about how to work with land conservation organizations to consider conservation goals, financial situations and family needs.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 22 at Town Hall.
