What is a Land Easement?
In the United States, a conservation easement is a power invested in a qualified private land conservation organization or government to constrain, as to a specified land area, the exercise of rights otherwise held by a landowner so as to achieve certain conservation purposes. It is an interest in real property established by agreement between a landowner and land trust or unit of government. The conservation easement “runs with the land,” meaning it is applicable to both present and future owners of the land. As with other real property interests, the grant of conservation easement is recorded in the local land records; the grant becomes a part of the chain of title for the property.
What are the benefits of conservation easements?
Conservation easements allow people to protect the land they love. They are the number one tool available for protecting privately owned land. All conservation easements must provide public benefits, such as water quality, farm and ranch land preservation, scenic views, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, education, and historic preservation.

Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation, Inc. is a 501c3 organization that was formed in 1995 to meet the increasing need for wildlife assistance through out North Mississippi. Each year hundreds of injured or orphaned birds and mammals are received by MWR, Inc. licensed rehabilitators. The most updated wildlife medical techniques are used to care for these animals to maximize their chances for survival when they are released back to their natural habitat.
One very important part of wildlife conservation is wildlife education. MWR, Inc. volunteers spend hundreds of hours educating the public in North MS about the important role each and every person has in their community. Just last year MWR, Inc. educated over 7,000 school children in wildlife conservation.
Located on 154 acres of natural habitat donated by the Army Corp of Engineers at Arkabutla Lake the Arkabutla Lake Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Center (ARK) is laced with 2 miles of trails and meets the need for conservation education and a hub for our precious natural resource: wildlife.
We encourage you to visit the ARK and witness the vision come to life as the long term plan becomes shorter each day!
