Southwest Land Alliance to host Saving the Ranch Event

Southwest Land Alliance will hold its fourth annual Saving the Ranch Event 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 30.

This year’s topic: Learn how conservation easements could be your financial safety net.

During this recession, many are asking how a person can weather the storm, pay the bills, stay on track for their retirement or build their children’s college funds.

Many people are thinking they might have to sell their precious land or cash out investments — at the worst possible time — to stay afloat.

This free presentation on May 30 will include opportunities to meet with tax professionals and landowners who have donated easements.
