Landowner Resources

The San Juan Preservation Trust holds a number of conservation easement agreements, and we enjoy productive and meaningful partnerships with each of our landowners. We are pleased to offer technical assistance and volunteer labor to help these conservation easement partners care for their land. We are also happy to share our expertise with all island residents that are interested in learning more about best practices in stewardship and land management.

The following SJPT-produced publications were created to help landowners care for their land. Click on these links to download:
