Remote Monitoring

Join Maryland Environmental Trust, Eastern Shore Land Conservancy and Lower Shore Land Trust for the next Land Trust Roundtable on Tuesday, February 15 from 12:30pm to 4:00pm.

The next Roundtable will feature the use of state-of-the-art technology for monitoring land conservation easements during COVID and beyond. Panelists will share their successes and challenges using drones as well as Lens (which uses high-definition aerial and satellite imagery) to complete site evaluations instead of traditional “boots-on-the-ground” monitoring visits.
