Scenic Rivers Land Trust

For the past 30 years, Scenic Rivers Land Trust has been a leader in land preservation in Anne Arundel County, currently holding conservation easements on 65 properties for a total of 2,784 acres. Join us for a breakfast buffet and an overview of conservation easements and how they may serve your organization’s environmental priorities. Topics to be covered include an overview of the legal and tax basis for conservation easements, the types of properties that are perfect for conservation easement protection, conservation easements and public access, and much more.

Also highlighted will be the powerful new forest protection grant program created by Anne Arundel County and managed by the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Over the last two years, Scenic Rivers Land Trust secured $2.3 million in grants through this program for seven landowners to protect 411 acres of priority forest, fields and wetlands.
