Land conservation program in Pike County

October 2, 2013

BLOOMING GROVE, PA — Learn how to keep cherished lands in the family, protect your lands and waters forever, and receive financial and estate planning benefits from doing so. Attend “Financial Benefits of Land Conservation,” Wednesday, October 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Pike County Conservation District.

Delaware Highlands Conservancy Executive Director Sue Currier and Jessica Grohmann of the Pike County Scenic Rural Character Preservation Program and assistant director of Pike County Planning, will discuss how conservation easements and agricultural easements are key tools for area residents. Local real estate attorney R. Anthony Waldron and financial planner Richard Eckersley will also be on hand to speak and answer questions.

The Pike County Scenic Rural Character Preservation Program offers funding assistance to landowners interested in protecting their land with a conservation easement. The funding may help to cover property surveys, title searches, baseline documentation, and monitoring stewardship costs associated with donating an easement to a land trust like the Delaware Highlands Conservancy. For more information, contact the Pike County Planning Office at 570/296-3500 or visit

This program is free and open to the public, but registration is requested; call 570/226-3164, 845/583-1010, or email to reserve your space. Visit for more information on other upcoming events.
