Black Swamp Conservancy
The mission of Black Swamp Conservancy is to protect and preserve natural and agricultural lands in northwest Ohio for the benefit of future generations. Our primary conservation tool is the conservation easement, or perpetual land conservation easement, through which the uses of the land are restricted in order to maintain the land's conservation values. The landowner maintains ownership; we become responsible to ensure that the land use restrictions are complied with, in perpetuity. We also own land to maintain it in a natural condition. Our land conservation work helps: create healthier communities, protect habitat for flora and fauna, and support economic sustainability.
