Conservation Easements

In this episode, host Dr. Mark Hostetler visits several farmers who are establishing conservation easements on their property. Viewers learn about how conservation easements work and how a farmer/landowner can establish them on his or her property. To conserve land for future generations, conservation easements provide a win-win solution for landowners and conservation organizations. The episode features farmers who have partnered with the Conservation Trust Florida and the Red Hills Conservation Program to establish conservation easements.
