Conservation Easements

Conservation easements are voluntary legal agreements that permanently limit certain uses of the land in order to protect unique conservation values. The McKenzie River Trust works to engage willing landowners in protecting habitat and natural landscapes in the McKenzie Watershed.

There are currently 15 conservation easements in the McKenzie Watershed, spanning over about 615 acres.

Landowners who have conservation easements along their streamside property are automatically considered Pure Water Partners and are eligible for program incentives
