Celebrating 40 Years of Farmland Preservation

A Two-Day National Conference
May 12 and 13, 2014 | Hershey, PA 


Over the last 40 years local and state governments and land trusts have preserved millions of acres of farm and ranch lands using agricultural conservation easements. How have these programs succeeded and how will they further evolve? Come to celebrate and to learn from the nation’s most successful programs. Connect with colleagues from across the country. Learn how you can improve policies and practices and find answers to your most challenging issues. Participate in lively discussions and come away inspired and informed!

Whether you work in land use planning, resource protection, conservation, agriculture, academia, law, or real estate, or you are a local elected official, if your work involves a farmland preservation effort, don’t miss this conference, the first of its kind in seven years! Make plans now to attend!

All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for their participation in this event.
