A program hosted by The Frontera Land Alliance. The El Paso region sits within the northern portion of the Chihuahuan Desert, one of the three most biologically diverse deserts in the world. The Rio Grande is one of the world’s major rivers and its waters are the lifeblood of the El Paso region. Outdoor recreation is part of our way of life from fishermen to children who play in the parks. Protecting our natural areas will ensure that we still have places to hike, bike, boat and view wildlife, or just enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. You may own land or you may have clients who are wondering what is the best way to preserve that land while still allowing their heirs to use it for farming, ranching or simply enjoying the beautiful views. Or your client is selling the land, but wants to limit the ways it will be used. Or you are helping a family deal with the land’s inheritance taxes. These and other scenarios will be addressed at the workshop along with other concerns of benefit to your clients. The workshop provides some truly great opportunity for attorneys, estate planners and realtors to get up-to-the-minute information on various ways to conserve land and help clients. The workshop’s guest speaker will be David Braun, of Braun & Gresham, PLLC, who will share the many conservation tools that are available and how these tools can be applied. Topics include: Estate Planning; Conservation Easements 101; Farm and Ranch Properties: Family Legacy or Liability; What Landowners Need to Know about Intrusion on Surface Use—Oil and Gas, Pipelines, Power Lines and Condemnation; Wildlife Management for Property Taxes.
