Our Mission:​

Maryland Environmental Trust works with landowners, local communities, and citizen land trusts to protect Maryland's most treasured landscapes and natural resources as a legacy for future generations. We accomplish this work by providing direct assistance, information and innovative tools to ensure the ongoing stewardship and public concern for the natural, historic, and scenic resources of the state.

As one of the oldest and most successful land trusts in the country, The Maryland Environmental Trust holds over 1,080 conservation easements preserving over 130,000 acres statewide.

From​ the Chesapeake Bay to the mountains of Garrett County, our Land Conservation, Monitoring and Stewardship, and Land Trust Assistance Programs promote the protection of open land.

We also provide grants to environmental education projects through the Keep Maryland Beautiful Program.
