The San Juan Coun­ty Land Bank is a local land con­ser­va­tion pro­gram, cre­at­ed by vot­ers in 1990, and fund­ed by a 1% real estate excise tax paid by pur­chasers of prop­er­ty in San Juan Coun­ty. Through con­ser­va­tion ease­ments or out­right pur­chas­es, the Land Bank pro­tects spe­cial places in the Islands includ­ing coast­lines, farm­land, forests and wetlands.
