Peter and Daun Hauspurg donated a conservation easement on 26 acres in 2001, on property they owned on Croton Lake Road, an area of Bedford where Westchester Land Trust has protected 171 acres. We asked him to talk about why he and Daun decided to donate a conservation easement, how the process went, and what the rewards were.
Lori Ensinger and Bill Kuebler bought their house and land, in Somers, in 2005 and protected 17 acres with a conservation easement the following year. The property is next to the 654-acre Angle Fly Preserve. We asked Lori, now WLT President, to describe the decision-making process.
