The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association has published the 3rd edition of its Model Grant of Conservation Easement and Declaration of Covenants for Riparian Buffer Protection at ConservationTools.org. The model document is tailored specifically for the protection of a riparian buffer along a waterway.
The model is based on the 7th edition of the Model Grant of Conservation Easement and Declaration of Covenants. Unlike that model, which provides for three levels of protection to address variations in conservation objectives across a property, this model addresses situations where you want to apply a uniform set of objectives and restrictions to the protected area.
A draft of the 3rd edition was posted for public review on 3/16/2017. The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association thanks all who took the time to review the draft.
