Durham conservation leader Ryals preserves land on South Lowell Road; TLC’s Our Water, Our Land campaign instrumental

Hildegard Ryals, a longtime conservation leader in Durham, donated a conservation easement to Triangle Land Conservancy on a 59-acre tract in northern Durham County at the end of December 2009. By donating a conservation easement, rather than donating the land itself, Ryals retains ownership of the property. The conservation easement allows for the possibility of a 3-acre home site in the future, and Ryals can also leave the property to her heirs or sell the land.
