Land Management Information 

Minnesota Land Trust staff often receive inquiries about land management from owners of properties protected by conservation easements.

This page is an initial collection of online publications we often send to landowners. It is in its infancy and is by no means exhaustive. If, as a landowner of a protected property, you have resources that you find helpful, please send them to the Land Trust.

If you plan to use these programs to make changes to your land, notify the Land Trust so that we may be sure your project is within the terms of your conservation easement and, if required, review the project for approval.

Do you have questions or comments? Do you have resources you found helpful that you would like to add? Please contact Kristina Geiger at kgeiger@mnland.org or (651) 917-6295. You may also call 1-877-MLT-LAND (toll free).
