Permanence and Viability Series
Maryland Environmental Trust’s current Land Trust Roundtable series will focus on addressing big issues around permanence and viability of easements including discussions on renewable energy development on protected and working lands; restoration and green infrastructure on private lands; climate change and resiliency and more.

Ensuring Permanence through Title Trails and Good Relationships
The second meeting this series will take place on Tues., Oct. 17, 2017. Join a panelist of experts and engage in a lively discussion about the importance of due diligence – those complex set of tasks that land trusts and partners must undertake for each transaction.
