Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore is home to farmlands and rural landscapes, beaches and forests, marshes and waterways. Dotted with wildlife and nature preserves, and trails for exploring the outdoors, it is ideal for fishing, cycling and enjoying nature. But the region also faces the negative environmental impact of increased real estate development and ground zero for impacts from climate change.
PROGRAMS & PROJECTS FOR STRATEGIC CONSERVATION
The Lower Shore Land Trust (LSLT), a nationally accredited environmental non-profit, is committed to preserving the character of the land and the quality of the water in this region for present and future generations. The organization focuses its program activities on three priority areas: Land Conservation, Habitat Restoration and Stewardship of Natural Resources.
Celebrating more than 30 years, we have worked with landowners to help preserve 24,000 acres of land, on more than 135 properties.
We offer a wide range of services to meet every type of need, including pollinator conservation and Northern Bobwhite conservation.
Monitoring the easements is part of our work we enjoy the most. We get the chance to visit beautiful properties and hear the stories about why someone cared enough about the land to preserve it for future generations.
A great way to get around!
