The Trust worked with three private landowners in Prince William, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties to conserve valuable natural lands. Conservation easements are an important part of the conservation toolbox, and it is a way for land to remain in private ownership, while recognizing the importance of open space and important natural features.
The Prince William conserved property in Nokesville is located in the county’s Rural Crescent and in the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area;
The Fairfax conservation easement is an oasis of natural land in the center of McLean;
and the 20-acre Loudoun land protects the scenic and rural character of the land which is surrounded by other important conserved land.
