Professional Training Opportunity on November 14: Land Conservation Appraisal Workshop - Registration Now Open

Want to know how to read an appraisal and how to spot common "red flags"?

Interested in knowing how to select and commission an appraiser? Do you need to better understand the methodology for conservation easement and fee land appraisals? Although a portion of this training will cover Minnesota state-specific guidelines, the training is appropriate for land trusts and government agency personnel from all states.

Then you'll want to attend the Land Conservation Appraisal Workshop presented by The Minnesota Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy.

Cindy Nathan of the Minnesota DNR and Wendy Walker of Walker Appraisals will walk us through the basics of how to read and understand appraisals, the new Minnesota state rules regarding appraisals, things to watch out for when reading appraisals, conservation easement appraisals and much more.

Who should attend? Agency representatives, non-profit staff, funders and anyone else working in land conservation with an interest in learning how properties may be valued. This is meant to be an inclusive workshop which will help you ensure sound, defensible conservation transactions.

When: Wednesday, November 14, 10:30 a.m.  - 4:30 p.m.

Where: REI Store, 750 American Boulevard West, Bloomington, MN 55420

Cost: $20 (includes lunch)

Landowners and Conservationists Kay and Roger Strand, recently honored

We're proud to know the Strands as landowners - they protected their Stoney Ridge Farm property in Kandiyohi County, rich with family history and enhanced even more by their prairie restoration and wood duck habitat work.
