At Scenic America, we’re not just dedicated to safeguarding our nation’s scenic beauty; we’re also committed to ensuring that future generations can enjoy the splendor of our landscapes both uninhibited by scenic blight and strengthened by education and programs that promote scenic beauty and conservation. As we celebrate National Estate Planning Week (October 16-22), we reflect on the importance of estate planning in preserving the places we love and cherish, and offer an opportunity to make your mark on our country’s landscape for years to come.

Estate planning might not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about scenic conservation, but it plays a pivotal role in securing the future of our natural and cultural treasures. Bequests and planned gifts are vital to our mission of protecting America’s scenic qualities and enhancing the quality of life for all. When you include Scenic America in your estate planning, you contribute to the lasting legacy of our work.

By designating a portion of your estate to Scenic America, you help us continue our efforts in preserving our beautiful landscapes, advocating for responsible land management, and promoting the aesthetic quality of our communities. To make this process easier, we recently established the Scenic America Planned Giving Society. We understand the importance of this decision and want to make sure those interested in giving to Scenic America as part of their estate can do so securely and meaningfully.

Estate planning is not just about ensuring the financial well-being of your loved ones; it’s also about leaving a legacy that reflects your values and passions. So, this week, consider how your legacy can contribute to the enduring beauty of our nation.

Together, we can protect and enhance America’s scenic heritage for generations to come.
