Conservation Easements – The Rest of the Story
holds the John S. Battle chair at the
University of Virginia School of Law
and is an expert in property rights, land preservation, and eminent domain.
She has written and spoken about Conservation Easements, and

explicitly designed to restrict the range of available land use options but
that also means they can restrict future generations' flexibility to respond
to advances in scientific knowledge and changes in cultural values.

Ed Wilson is
educated in Forestry and the vice president of
Outdoor Underwriters. While
his primary focus has been the creation of a sustainable Hunt Lease Liability Program,
Outdoor Underwriters also focuses on safety and education for landowners and the

LIABILITY INSURANCE AVAILABLE FOR LEASING LAND TO MOUNTAIN BIKERS!
A listener asked this question: "Would I be able to get the AFOA
liability insurance for leasing to mountain bikers?" Ed Wilson (see
previous guest, above) replied: "As long as it is structured similar to a
hunting lease it would be considered a recreational lease. If it is a day
lease and/or commercial operation business the hunting lease policy would
not be applicable." The application form to use AFOA's liability policy
is at www.HuntingInsurance.bz.
