The Manor Conservancy partners with
the community to permanently protect
the natural, historic, agricultural and
scenic resources of Manor area land.
The Manor Conservancy works to preserve the predominantly rural character of Northern Baltimore and Harford Counties, to resist the spread of development and sprawl, to guard the water and air quality, and to support and encourage groups and activities intent on improving the environment.
The community plays a significant role through participation in conservation programs, including a vehicle called a Deed of Easement. An easement is a legal agreement between a landowner and a government organization or a land trust that protects land and its natural resources from unwanted development. This protection lasts forever, even if the property is later sold. Learn More
