The Ties to the Land Workshop comes to Butte on April 13 to help families prepare for succession planning of property. The Ties to the Land Workshop, subtitled “The human side of estate planning,“ is presented by the Forest Stewardship Foundation with help from the Montana Association of Land Trusts. Additional information about the Ties workshop is available at the Montana Forest Stewardship Foundation website, which includes a registration form. The workshop runs 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the Butte Business Development Center, Room 209, at 305 W. Mercury in Uptown Butte. Workshop leaders will again be Madeline and Kirk David, who have been bringing the popular and respected Ties workshops to Montana for several years. Attendance for the workshop is currently open, and will close on March 31. Attendance is limited to 25 to accommodate the personal interactive aspects of the workshops. Landowners who have participated in the Ties workshops report the workshops have been informative, helpful, and instructive on succession planning of land. The concept of conservation easements within succession planning is a topic within the workshops.
