Th'is new legislation, sponsored bte Senator Carlos Cisneros (l-T,os) will establish a'program t'ayill enable the state to make Kfits to fund con,ervation ease- rnent and restoration projects on, pfiyate lands. ,.s',-"For the first time will have ".afe rrnanent mechanism for fund-. !rg conservation projects across oar state,", said Governor Richardson at the signing cer- emony for the Natural Heritage Qonservation Act. "I am also pleased that we were able to se- cure $5 million during the legis- lative session, so that we will be able to start funding these impor- tant initiatives right away." Despite the state's current fi- nancial problems, New Mexico House Speaker Ben Lujan (D- Santa Fe) said it was important to earmark land for conservation. At the signing ceremony, Lujan posed the question, "If we don't do it now, when? When the land is gone?" With conser.vation ease- ments, willing private landown- ers voluntarily enter into agree- ments with qualified conserva- tion organizations or public agen- cies to restrict subdivision, devel- opment and certain incompatible uses of the land in order to pro- tect the wildlife, agricultural, see- Foster, adoptive parents needed in New Mexico C00.O ::,'..,eeoming a foster or adop- tivff.)parent can make a huge dif- fd/ellce in the life of a child. --2> ]loin us for an information fie. g 'thag to be held this month of F6ary in your area.

Landowners who grant easements retain ownership of their land and can continue to farm, ranch and engage in other traditional forms of land use that are consistent with the purposes of the easement. They can also lease, sell or pass their land on to their heirs, but the easements run with the land and are binding on all future landowners. "Every year, New Mexico is losing thousands of acres of pro- ductive farm and ranch land along with the associated conservation values they provide to unbridled growth and development," said Larry Winn, Chair of the New Mexico Soil & Water Commis- sion. "We view conservation ease- ments as a way to keep agricul- tural land in family ownership and in production, and as an impor- tant option for farmers and ranch- ers to consider as an alternative to simply selling, subdividing and developing their lands." "Easements are as much a tax and financial planning tool as they are a conservation technique for private landowners," said Scott Wilber, Executive Director of the New Mexico Land Conser- vancy, a statewide non-profit land trust based in Santa Fe. He noted that landowners can receive sig- nificant federal and state tax in- centives by donating part or all or the value of a conservation ease- ment. but added that in a state like New Mexico where mariy of the landowners are land-rich and cash- poor, particularly within the agri- cultural community, tax benefits alone are not always enough to get the job done. "Conservation easements and restoration cost money," said Wilber. "A combination of state funding and tax incentives will further enhance the ability of con- servation organizations, public agencies, municipalities, land grants, tribes and soil and water conservation districts to work with private landowners to con- serve their lands.'" The program created by the Natural Heritage Conservation Act will also help leverage other sources of conservation funding, through federal programs such as the Land & Water Conservation Fund. the Farm Bill, the Clean Water Act. the USDA Farm & Ranchland Protection and Forest Legacy programs, as well as state wildlife grants and local conser- vation funding from New Mexico's cities and counties. Studies have shown that New Mexico misses out on approxi- mately $20 million in federal land. and water conservation funding each year because it does not have adequate state matching funds.
