Has a land trust (such as The Nature Conservancy), watershed conservation group (e.g., The Freshwater Trust) or a government entity (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, for example) offered to purchase all or a portion of your property for conservation purposes? I provide a full range of legal services to individuals, government entities, and non-profits with land conservation and property right transactions across the state of Oregon.
