Matchmaking - Buy and Holds
Matchmaking - Buy and Holds

Often times landowners will contact us wanting to sell or donate their land for preservation, but don't know who to contact. We can help landowners interested in preserving their land make contacts with local open space agencies and help start a dialogue.

There are times when the owner of an important piece of land needs to sell, but local public open space agencies either aren’t ready or need time to gather the funds to purchase it. That’s a perfect time to contact us. We can buy the property quickly and hang onto it until the public agency gets a grant or accumulates the funds to purchase it from us. Once we own it, the land is made available to the public agency for access and management, just the same as if they bought it themselves.

For more information and to pursue your land preservation options, please contact our Director of Land Protection, Dan Lobbes.  Click here to email him or call 630-428-4500, Ext. 201.
