Conservation Easements are legal instruments that protect open space, natural resources, and wildlife habitat. We are delighted with the effort that the Central Arizona Land Trust made to create the Easement for Coldwater Farm. Now this vital habitat for wild animals including endangered Yellow-billed Cuckoos and the Southwestern Willow Flycatchers is safe from all future development.
