Tracking Local Land Trust Protected Lands Data

​March 1, 2024​​

Join Maryland Department of Planning, Department of Natural Resources, and Maryland Environmental Trust for a free webinar on March 1 to learn more about a collaborative effort to collect and map the most comprehensive land trust and private conservation organization protected lands data.

MDP, DNR and MET are seeking your help in sending us your most recent land preservation data for properties where your organization has sole or joint interest. Accurate Protected lands data ensures that measurements of progress towards cumulative land conservation goals (e.g., 40x40 goal) are accurate, helps to direct public dollars to priority areas that are not already protected, and reflects a more complete picture of preservation accomplishments by all parties including the local land trusts and conservancies.

This webinar will discuss the goals and purpose of the project, explain the data collection process, and allow time for participant questions. Learn more.

Participants discussed the importance of good record keeping, how to identify critical records and how to plan for getting records organized and protected for perpetuity.
