Tradelands are properties donated to CLC by landowners who want to support our work.
These properties may or may not have significant conservation characteristics.
- Properties as small as a few acres as well as sites of more than 100 acres have been donated to CLC.
- CLC staff and Trustees evaluate the donated property’s natural resources; if they are deemed to be of long-term conservation importance, the property will be protected with a conservation easement prior to selling it to a conservation buyer.
- All proceeds from the sale are applied to our conservation work throughout the county.
- Land donations often have tax benefits.
If you would like to help protect the rural character of Columbia County through the donation of a tradeland property, or to find out more about the tradeland program, contact Marissa Codey 518.392.5252, ext. 211 or email@example.com.
