"I get extreme gratification knowing that the land we protect today will be safeguarded forever. That's what NVCT is all about. Serving the best interest of our landowners and the plants and animals that occupy these lands through conservation." -Alan Rowsome Executive Director at NVCT
The Northern Virginia Conservation Trust is committed to saving nearby nature across the region, with more than 8,000 acres conserved in the last 25 years.
We work collaboratively with landowners to conserve land in the northern Virginia region. Whether or not to protect your land involves a thoughtful review of the goals you have for your property, its features, financial considerations, and your families' vision for your property's future. NVCT is committed to helping you assess the various options available to you.
Since the community benefits from the conservation of open spaces and natural areas, there are criteria-contingent tax incentives for private landowners who conserve and donate their land. NVCT can help you examine the possible federal and state income tax implications associated with your property, in addition to the federal, state, and local real estate and estate tax benefits and reductions that may apply to you and your property.

Every property has its unique makeup. Likewise, every conservation easement is unique to itself. NVCT can help landowners identify options, but it is essential to consult your own legal and tax professionals for advice before any transaction.
