Maryland Land Conservation Conference Focused on Future
Annual Event Unites Multitude of Stewardship Partners
The Maryland Environmental Trust recently welcomed more than 140 people from 83 organizations – land trusts, conservancies, governmental organizations, heritage organizations, members of the agricultural community and other partners – to its 2018 Maryland Land Conservation Conference.
The event, held May 17 at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, explored land conservation and stewardship, using science and technology to further conservation goals, attracting the next generation of conservation and community stewards, and enhancing organizational development and sustainability.
“We will seek to continue these conversations throughout the year and build on this year’s conference, while exploring new opportunities to build a stronger, more resilient and durable conservation movement,” Director Bill Leahy said.
