PRACTICE

D. Monitoring Land Trust Properties

The land trust regularly monitors its properties and property boundaries for potential management problems such as trespass, misuse or overuse, vandalism or safety hazards or other activities as listed in the management plan and takes actions to rectify such problems. The land trust should mark the property boundaries or have capacity to establish the boundaries in the event of encroachments. Land trusts should record monitoring information and quickly respond to any problems. Monitoring of Ecological Gifts will include confirmation that the present use of the property is consistent with that at the time of the donation and monitoring documentation relating to Ecological Gifts will be made available to Environment Canada upon request.
