in December, Douglas Land Conservancy (DLC) accepted conservation easement charitable donations on two separate properties in Douglas County for the permanent protection of open space and wildlife habitat. The Meyer family donated a conservation easement on 40 acres of land in Sedalia near the Pike National Forest. This newly-conserved parcel is adjacent to 440 acres already protected by the family with conservation easements held by DLC. An additional 38 acres in Sedalia along Highway 105 was protected with a conservation easement donated by a private landowner to DLC. Congratulations to DLC and to the landowners on the permanent protection of these beautiful properties!
