MONITORING CONSERVATION PROPERTIES
Why We Monitor
Annual monitoring visits help us keep track of activities taking place on the land and result in a legal record of the property’s condition, providing staff with the information needed to follow up if necessary. This process is one of the primary ways we stay in regular contact with all of our easement landowners. By spending time with landowners on their properties, we develop strong relationships and promote a collaborative approach to land management while building support throughout our community. Sonoma Land Trust is also obligated by the Land Trust Alliance Standards and Practices to monitor each individual property at least once each calendar year.
