Conservation and historic easements in the County total approximately 14,700 acres. Most of the easements are owned by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation. The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors created a county easement program whereby the county, as a juridiction, may hold and protect easements. In 2007, Fluvanna County accepted the first easement under its conservation easement program. As of 2013, the County has approved four conservation easements that total over nine hundred acres.
Other agencies that deal with conservation easements include the Thomas Jefferson Soil & Water Conservation District, the Virginia Department of Forestry, the Department of Historic Resources, the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Each agency has a specific focus for the easements that it accepts, but all have the resources to properly advise interested parties.
