This May, at the Southwest Landowners Conference, attendees have a unique opportunity to get help for their property rights issues. Sponsored by two national nonprofit property rights organizations, the American Land Foundation and Stewards of the Range, the conference is bringing in some of the nations top property rights attorneys to meet privately with attendees on their specific issues

Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 30, 2005 -- On Friday, May 13th, landowners and property rights specialists from all across the country will gather at Austin’s Radisson Hotel, overlooking beautiful Town Lake, for the Southwest Landowner Conference.

The all day, power packed workshop is being coordinated by two major property rights organizations, the American Land Foundation and Stewards of the Range, and is sponsored in part by LandGuard, a premier legal plan designed for landowners.

The SWLC will feature a number of significant presentations from a diverse pool of experts. Several of the nation’s leading property rights attorneys are scheduled to speak about current precedent setting cases they are litigating in the courts. Rancher, author and prominent property rights plaintiff, Wayne Hage, will talk about his experience “in the trenches” while opposing government agencies. Dr. Michael Coffman, president of Environmental Perspectives will make public his newly created maps showing the environmentalist’s master plan to lock up over fifty percent of American soil and will disclose to what degree that plan has been realized.

Former Congressman, Helen Chenoweth-Hage will explain the power of the grassroots organizations and their role in affecting public policy in Washington, D.C. Dan Byfield, President of American Land Foundation, will reveal how Texas intends to condemn over a half million acres of private land to build one of the nation’s largest boondoggles for greed and profit. Fred Kelly Grant, Litigation Chairman for Stewards of the Range, will explain how Conservation Easements, Purchase of Development Rights (PDR’s), Smart Growth, Urban Sprawl, Farmland Protection, and other innocent sounding programs are deceiving landowners into giving up their property rights. R.J. Smith from the Center for Private Conservation will bring the latest news from Washington, D.C. about the full court press to amend and reauthorize the Endangered Species Act, without providing any protections for private property.

In addition to the regular conference agenda, LandGuard members will have the opportunity to schedule a private session, free of charge, with one of the property rights attorneys to discuss any property rights issues they may be facing. Interested landowners may enroll in LandGuard at the time of registration, and if session time is available, may schedule an appointment on the day of the conference.

Registration fees are $75 per person or $125 per couple. Landowners can register by phone at 1-800-452-6389 or online at To register by mail, please send name, address, phone number and the appropriate registration fee to:
