Landowner Corner

Landowner Stories

Every piece of land has a story. And every landowner has a reason for choosing to work with the Conservancy to permanently protect their cherished property—whether the land has been a family farm for generations or it was recently purchased because of its beautiful views and wildlife habitat.

In these pages, you’ll read about the many different types of properties and landowners that the Conservancy has worked with since 1994. Each property is unique, just like every land protection agreement. Many landowners have different goals for stewardship and long-term care of their properties, and you’ll get to read how these landowners turn their ideas into reality.

Where We Work

The Conservancy works primarily in the four counties that border the Upper Delaware River—Pike and Wayne Counties in Pennsylvania, and Sullivan and Delaware Counties in New York. Our work occasionally extends into neighboring counties, such as Monroe County, PA or Orange County, NY.

We’ve directly protected more than 18,000 acres of forests, farms, and waters in this region.

Properties listed on this page are for sale with a local realtor and are protected with a conservation easement.

In some cases, landowners who donate conservation easements are eligible for tax deductions or tax credits.

Why I love where I live

“We in NYC are completely dependent on water that comes partly from the Upper Delaware region.

Water is the source of life and it’s because of the Conservancy’s protection of land that our water is so pure. My land is a part of that. We’re all connected. And we need that connection to the land because it’s also a source of rejuvenation and recreation.”
