Gifts of Land

SIGN IN    SAVE TO MY DU    PRINT    AAA

DU will consider accepting certain properties offered for donation. As a general rule, DU does not hold title to real estate over the long term. Lands donated to DU are usually transferred to a subsequent owner shortly after DU acquires title.

Biologists will work with the state and federal government, other conservation organizations and individuals to find an appropriate owner for the land. Many times, the land becomes a valuable addition to a wildlife area or conservation system.

Lands that are not critical to wildlife, but are none-the-less valuable properties, may be sold by DU and the proceeds used to pay for other conservation work.

Contact National Headquarters to get more information if you are thinking of making a donation of land.
