Annual Conservation Easement Inspection

Annual Conservation Easement Inspection

Today, with Peggy Lyon of the Black Canyon Regional Land Trust, I did an annual walk around of the portions of our property that are under conservation easements. We also did a walk around inspection of the fences we put in last summer around the endangered clay-loving buckwheat populations. There are no issues with us meeting the terms of the conservation easements. We have a commitment to regularly inspect the 3 fenced areas for the endangered buckwheat and repair any damaged locations. The fences themselves are in excellent condition, which should be the case since they are so new. The only issue I found was where some of last year's late summer thunderstorms caused some down cutting of existing gullies that, if we experience the same kind of thunderstorms this year, may need attention next year. I will send letters to BLM and the Fish and Wildlife Service letting them know the fences are in good shape. Jim Ferguson

It was time for our annual conservation easement inspection by the Black Canyon Regional Land Trust. I met Peggy Lyon on the property.  We checked out the  portions of the property that are under conservation easement (which is most of the property, except the flying facilities proper). They look for a number of things, including: off road vehicle travel, construction activity that they have not been consulted about, and any other surface disturbance on the easement areas. We also took a walk around the protective fences for the endangered buckwheat, and took a little time checking on the status/health of some of the populations within the fenced areas.
