Two North Carolina attorneys with expertise in estate planning and two senior officials with The Conservation Fund – one of the nation’s leading environmental organizations – will be the event’s featured speakers. The conference will feature two sessions as follows:

• Estate Planning and Heirs Property. 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. ET Feb. 24
Landowners will learn about steps they can take to establish an estate plan that fits their goals. This session will include a discussion of the potential use of trusts as an ownership vehicle, as well as other ways that landowners can ensure their forestland will remain within the family for multiple generations. Presenters are Mavis Gragg, a Durham-based estate planning attorney and director of the American Forest Foundation’s Sustainable Forestry and Land Retention Program; and Pamela Harrigan-Young, an estate planning attorney in Raleigh.

• Deeds, Leases and Conservation Easements, 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. ET Feb. 25. Landowners will learn about strategies and structures that can help them protect their property rights and effectively manage their land. Presenters are Margaret Conrad, capacity builder, resourceful communities for The Conservation Fund; and Peg Kohring, senior associate with The Conservation Fund, a nonprofit organization based in northern Virginia.
