The Fairfield Land Preservation Association is one of several organizations in Fairfield County able to assist landowners interested in protecting Fairfield County’s land and cultural resources. We will act as a partner with the community to increase awareness of issues that impact our open and wild spaces through education and outreach activities. A main goal of the FLPA is providing appropriate conservation options to landholders interested in finding methods of protecting lands for the benefit of future generations of residents of Ohio and Fairfield County. The main form of protection available to the Fairfield Land Preservation Association is the Conservation Easement — a legal document that permanently restricts certain activities on a piece of property. Tailored to meet the desires of the landowner, the conservation easement allows the landowner to retain ownership and use of the land while ensuring future protection .
