Mission or Purpose
We are committed to the protection and preservation of the agricultural heritage and rural lifestyle that still characterizes Bedminster and neighboring communities in upper Bucks County. To accomplish this, we must acquire conservation easements on land, either donated (and thus tax-deductible), or purchased. We educate landowners on the economic and ethical value of conservation easements, and encourage and help them to protect their properties. To this end, we have established an easement fund, and as it grows we will be able to purchase easement rights from those landowners who meet our criteria.
