If there's a special place you would like to preserve in perpetuity, the Hastings Prince Edward Land Trust can provide options that best suit both parties. For example, donations of land protect special features forever and they may qualify for the Canada Ecological Gifts Program (Ecogift) for ecologically significant lands. Ecogift donors can receive significant tax benefits. Or if you wish to continue ownership of the property, you can consider working with HPELT to place a Conservation Easement on the property.

Stewardship Program

Stewardship is one of HPELT's core program areas ensuring the long-term protection of a property's significant natural values. Through the purchase or acceptance of land and easement donations, the Trust is committed to the stewardship of that property in perpetuity. Our Stewardship Program is dedicated to achieving this goal through the support and passion of members of our local communities that share in our interest in protecting these special places. The stewardship of all of our properties is led by dedicated individuals committed to watching over our reserves to make sure that they are properly cared for, monitored and respected by those that visit.
