Our Mission

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.


We support preservation and protection and these conservation values:

  • Sustainable economies: Agriculture, forestry, recreation
  • Scenic beauty: Open space and rural landscapes 
  • Clean water: Streams and Chesapeake watersheds 
  • Natural habitat: Native plants, trees, and wildlife
  • Historic heritage: Historically and culturally significant areas

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

AREA MAP: Click to see Area Map  Our territory extends from the core of the My Lady's Manor National Historic District, encompasses the Manor Rural Legacy Area in Baltimore and Harford Counties, and reaches into the agricultural and open space land north to the Maryland Line.

This video features our Treasurer, Thorne Gould, and several Directors and members talking about land preservation. Thanks to Willie White Media for putting it together.
