For more than 25 years, Tinicum Conservancy has helped landowners realize their personal conservation goals. We work with you to tailor an easement or other technique to your individual situation.

Conserving your land is a profound and lasting way to help protect our area’s rural character and natural resources. One of the strongest tools that allows landowners and groups like the Conservancy to do this is the conservation easement.


A conservation easement is a legally binding agreement between a landowner and a qualified conservation organization (such as the Tinicum Conservancy). It places permanent restrictions on a property to control development and protect significant conservation or agricultural values. An easement “runs with the land,” meaning all future owners are bound by it.


With a conservation easement, landowners retain ownership of their land, and often receive significant tax benefits and/or payment for their commitment. Conservation easements benefit the entire community by reducing development pressure, improving water quality, providing wildlife habitat, and preserving local farms.
