Conservation Buyer Program

The Methow Conservancy is looking for conservation buyers interested in purchasing high-priority conservation properties in the Methow Valley!

These buyers are critical to the ongoing stewardship of properties that are protected by a conservation easement. Or, these buyers can choose to work with the Methow Conservancy to place a conservation easement on properties with high quality habitat, significant river frontage, connection to existing protected areas, or productive agricultural soils that are at risk of subdivision and degradation.

Here are a series of links to the real estate listings of properties currently for sale that either have conservation easements or are part of a conservation project with us:

Baron Place Conservation Easement - wildlife habitat & homesite between Winthrop and Twisp

Dalrymple Conservation Easement - forested land and home in the Rendezvous

Hancock Springs Ag/II Conservation Easement - wildlife habitat & homesite in Mazama

VanderYacht Conservation Easement - agricultural land & home on East County Road between Winthrop and Twisp

Zwar Conservation Easement - ranch with home up McFarland Creek in the Lower Valley

If you would like to learn more about any of these listings, please contact the listing agent. If you would like to learn more about the potential tax advantage of donating a conservation easement, or if you would like to sell to a conservation buyer, please contact us at 509-996-2870 or email us.

Although our staff is available to help a conservation buyer find that special property in the Methow, we are not realtors. Therefore, we accept no fees or commissions for our work and instead seek to work in partnership with members of our local real estate community in matching worthy properties with conservation-minded buyers.

Join us and choose a future for the Methow Valley that includes healthy wildlife habitat, thriving agriculture, and a connected community.
