Land Registry

Land-registryIf you are conserving and enhancing the natural resources on your land but are not ready for any permanent conservation method, consider enrolling in our Land Stewardship Registry Program.

This is a non-binding recognition program that rewards you for being a good land steward. If you agree to continue to conserve the land to the best of your ability and to let us know if you sell or pass on the land, we will provide to you:

  • A certificate of enrollment.
  • A map of the property.
  • Information on good stewardship practices.
  • Registry sign to post on your land, signifying your good stewardship.

Consider joining dozens of landowners in Jo Daviess County who have enrolled over 12,000 acres of land!
