Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle
The Land Trust of the Eastern Panhandle was formed in 1994 to preserve open space, farmland, and rural landscapes in the three-county region of West Virginia. LTEP’s vision is a future for the Eastern Panhandle that includes abundant farmland, greenways, open space, safe drinking water, and the integrity of natural and cultural heritage.
LTEP works to preserve the scenic beauty and historic character that have long made region attractive; promote a healthy, balanced local economy by preserving farmland and encouraging appropriate development; and to encourage wise stewardship of the region’s natural resources.
A private, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, the Land Trust governed by a volunteer board of local residents from Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties. The Land Trust uses techniques that have been successful all over the country, providing landowners flexible and creative legal methods to protect land. The primary method is a perpetual conservation easement.
