Protected in Fiscal Year 2000
The following projects were completed in Fiscal Year 2000 (July
1, 1999 - June 30, 2000). With the help of our partners, 3487.45
acres of land were acquired.
DEM acquired most of these properties outright, known as a "fee
acquisition." However, a number of these projects protect less than
fee property interests, such as conservation restrictions (which
essentially remove the right to develop a property), or trail easements
(which establish a recreational corridor for public use). It should
be noted that dozens of other potential projects were identified
and evaluated along with the group of projects that closed in FY00.
