Scenic Farm Conserved in Baltimore County
Permanent Easement Protects 97 Acres of Agricultural and Forested Lands
The Maryland Environmental Trust has helped a longtime landowner permanently conserve a 97-acre farm near Parkton in Baltimore County.
Property owner Susan Glick recently gifted a conservation easement covering the tract, which was originally purchased in 1976 along with her late husband and another couple.
“We are grateful to Ms. Glick for choosing to preserve her property,” said Maryland Environmental Trust Director Bill Leahy. “Her decision to protect this farm and its rich natural resources is an important legacy for this and future generations.”
Adding to a large block of protected land nearby, the farm includes extensive scenic frontage along Jordan Sawmill Road. Third Mine Branch, a tributary of the Gunpowder River, meanders along the southern boundary of the property.
The property also includes a large section of forested lands, which provide habitat for a variety of birds.
