This is a great opportunity for advisors, landowners and anyone else interested in getting up-to-the-minute information on various ways to conserve land. Please join our guest speakers—several attorneys from Braun and Gresham, PLLC and Robertson/Smith Attorneys at Law—to hear all about the many conservation tools that are available. Two sessions will be offered. The first (8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) is aimed at advisors; the second (8 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) is oriented toward the needs of landowners and the general public eager to learn how a conservation easement can be of use to them.
