Preston Lacy is the program coordinator for the Katy Land Trust. Preston stopped by today and as we explored the PGT he told me what the Katy Land Trust was all about. Their key goal is to protect the agricultural, scenic, and natural resources along the Katy Trail. They hope to accomplish that by having landowners put their property in conservation easements.
What they are doing should go a long way toward containing urban sprawl. The nice thing for the land owners is that they can continue to enjoy their property as before and they might even get a tax break out of it.
