Land preservation and coronavirus
Like many non-profits, our doors are closed but our efforts to preserve land continue. In fact, it’s never been more clear how important land preservation is. Locally-grown food, abundant clean water, and lots of places to get fresh air and exercise while practicing physical distancing are important for our physical and mental health – and made possible by thousands of acres of preserved land in northern Baltimore and Harford Counties.
Click here for a map that shows some of the more than 4000 acres we’ve preserved since 1993. And please let us know if you have questions about which activities are permissible in county and state parks and/or required licenses. Requirements can vary by jurisdiction and we are working to keep up with changing rules. You can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (240) 389-2531.
Matching Fund donations
A generous donor is matching donations to our Iglehart Fund, used to preserve land that is imminently threatened by development, up to $100,000. Won't you help us protect land today?
We support preservation and protection and these conservation values:
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
