Conservation Easement Monitoring

The mission of the Tejon Ranch Conservancy is to “protect, enhance and restore” the conserved lands on Tejon Ranch. While it is often said that almost 90% of Tejon Ranch is conserved, how exactly is this conservation achieved? The Conservancy, after all, does not own any part of Tejon Ranch. Instead, the Ranch is conserved through conservation easements. 


A conservation easement is a legally-binding agreement between two or more parties regarding how a property may be used. 


One of the primary tasks mandated by the Ranch-Wide Agreement (RWA) is that the Conservancy conduct annual monitoring of the easements on the Ranch. Because each easement is a little different, each has its own set of restrictions or prohibited uses. Easement monitoring is a field-based activity ensuring no prohibited activities are occurring on a given easement.
