We work with communities to protect and improve land for parks, gardens, trails and natural areas within Baltimore County's Urban Rural Demarcation Line (URDL), shown in green at above. In this densely populated place, 90% of the County's population lives on just 1/3 of  its total land area.  We seek to offset the effects of density by promoting health & well being, buffering local streams from polluted run-off, and enhancing the value of homes and businesses.  Learn more …

Like most land trusts, we rely heavily on the generosity of members who support our work.  Since 2012, the acreage we’ve protected has grown by 128% and our stewardship costs (e.g., insurance, monitoring, maintenance) by 70%. Membership costs just $18 annually for students and seniors and $24 for individuals. Please consider joining today.

Neighborhood parks, trail easements, passive open spaces … We’ve preserved over 85 acres across 18 sites inside the URDL since 2005.  With our new mapping tool, we hope to do an even better job of aligning our conservation efforts with goals our constituents see as important. Learn more …
