Land Conservation and Acquisition Tools


In a donation a landowner presents land, interests in land, or easements as a gift to the federal government. It is a way to add land to the federal land system and protect unique areas by placing them in public ownership. In a recent example, a landowner donated and deeded full ownership of over 10 acres of private land to the United States. The 10-acre parcel was completely surrounded by U.S. Forest Service land and was in a designated wilderness area.
