Virgin River Land Preservation Association

The Virgin River Land Preservation Association is a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit land trust working to preserve lands with recreational, scenic, ecological, agricultural, and other conservation values in the Virgin River basin. We offer alternatives to land use regulation that are voluntary, meet the needs of the private property owner, and permanently protect open land. These techniques include purchases of land or development rights at fair market value, tax deductions for charitable donations of land or conservation easements, and a unique combination of purchase and donation known as a “bargain sale".

The Virgin River Land Preservation Association's focus is to help landowners whose properties have multiple conservation values. We look for open space values recognized by the Internal Revenue Service for their public benefits because this increases the likelihood that a landowner may be able to take advantage of tax benefits associated with the permanent conservation of their land. We note values such as productive farmland, scenic viewsheds, travel corridors, recreation access, adjacency to significant public land, riparian corridors, wildlife habitat, and historical values. The more of these public conservation values contained on a property, the higher priority it receives.
