CLCA has distributed information through two publications produced to help educate landowners and community members about land conservation. Saving Special Places: Community Funding for Land Conservation, co-authored and produced by CLCA, is a compendium of the many ways municipalities can establish funds for land conservation projects with case studies from New Hampshire towns that have succeeded with each technique. Conserving Your Land: Options for New Hampshire Landowners provides NH landowners with a comprehensive guide to land conservation options.
If you're interested in permanently conserving your land, but aren't sure how to go about it, we can help! Knowing what options exist and how the process works are important first steps, so we've created the following guides to help answer your questions:
