Maryland Land Conservation Conference Set for June 8

Focus on Role of Land Trusts in Meeting Shared Conservation Challenges and Goals

The annual Maryland Land Conservation Conference will bring together land trusts, conservancies, local and state governments, heritage organizations, members of the agricultural community and other partners for a comprehensive discussion about the future of land conservation in our region.

The conference will be held June 8 at the Pearlstone Retreat and Conference Center.

“This year’s conference will expand our thinking about the role land trusts must play in in order to meet our conservation goals,” Maryland Environmental Trust Executive Director William Leahy said. “Attendees will be able to discuss recent advances in technology and research, explore innovative partnerships and see specific strategies in action – all of which are bringing the conservation community closer to real and important progress in broadening the impact of our missions.”

The conference will cover topics relevant to the land conservancy community, exploring themes related to community engagement, organizational development and communications, sustainability and regional partnerships.
