Conserve your land

Some of the conservation property in Amherst has been placed in easements or donated to the Amherst Conservation Commission by owners who wished to preserve their land in an undeveloped state. If you own land that you believe should be preserved in its natural state forever, contact us.


Read about the issues and the process used for gifts of land to the Conservation Commission. There also exist a number of useful books to read on this subject. They describe easements and other options besides outright gifts of property. At least two of these books are available at the Amherst Library and can be purchased at the web sites linked below:
