If you own land in the Lumber River Basin…

You can help the LRC and the Lumber River by:

  • Donating land to the LRC. To date, 74% of the land to which the LRC holds title has been donated. There are federal, state, and local taxes for any donation of land title to the LRC.
  • Placing a conservation agreement on your land through the LRC. Conservation agreements enable landowners to preserve their land while keeping the title. Conservation easements are done in partnership with a land trust or state agency. They are documents in which the parties agree to protect the land in perpetuity. There are federal and state tax benefits for land owners that place a conservation agreement on their land. Click here for frequently asked questions about conservation agreements.

If you would like to make a cash donation…

Please contact Patricia Sellers of the LRC or one of the other trustees. The LRC is a charitable organization and donors will receive a donation letter that they can use to reduce their taxes.
