The Central Arizona Land Trust (CALT) actively works to conserve land by undertaking or assisting in land or conservation easement transactions. Our primary role is the protection and stewardship of such land or easements in perpetuity.

 

A conservation easement is defined as a voluntary legal agreement between a landowner and a land trust that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values.

 

CALT held conservation easements are integral to overall ecosystem health in the region and are important places of refuge for both wildlife and people.  The City of Prescott owns six of our seven conservation easements and public access is allowed. The W Diamond Ranch, now known as the Seven Spears Ranch, is a operating cattle ranch and does not allow for public access.
