If Perpetual is not Forever: Emerging Challenges and Opportunities in Land Conservation
Jessica E. Jay, Land Conservation Attorney and Law Professor

As the use of perpetual conservation easements to protect private property continues to grow in popularity, so grow the challenges and opportunities associated with these perpetually binding promises. Today’s conservation community faces significant challenges to the durability and flexibility of perpetual conservation easements as a result of changing conditions, landscapes, climate, and public interests. Conservationists will need to look to new frontiers for answers and opportunities to respond to these changes and challenges, and to shape our protected landscapes going forward.
