This conservation easement protects wildlife habitat, scenic forested road frontage and water quality, as well as allow for marsh migration over time. The conservation easement also significantly reduces housing density and incompatible development on the property. This reduction in density protects the Marine Corps Air Station’s military mission by adding protected open space for their pilots to fly freely and safely while training.
OLT is proud to partner with the Bowers family, DoD and the Conservation Bank to protect properties like this one. We believe our natural and local communities can thrive when we all work together to improve water quality, improve military readiness and permanently protect family lands like Bowers Farm.
