Land Trust Properties

We are a Land Trust

As part of its mission to protect and preserve the future environmental integrity of the lower Muskingum watershed, Lower Muskingum Conservancy is incorporated as a Land Trust. As a Land Trust we have assumed ownership, and thus protective custody, of several vital properties within the watershed land area. We have acquired property from a concerned individual, which is being used by Marietta College as a field biology station under a Memorandum of Understanding between LMC and the college. LMC also acquired and then transferred to the City of Marietta a 9-acre addition to Kroger Wetlands, which is a passive use park with walking trails. Learn more about Land Trusts and Conservation Easements here. If you wish to contact Lower Muskingum Conservancy about donating your property to a Trust or to ask for help setting up a conservation easement, we are there for you.
