2016 Maryland Land Conservation Conference and Summit

Maryland Land Conservation Conference and Summit May 5-6, 2016May 5 - 6, 2016

The first day of the conference, Thursday, May 5 at The Conference Center at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum Heights, MD, will feature our usual offerings of diverse workshops, presentations and evening awards celebration. The conference provides opportunity for land trusts, conservancies, local and state government agencies, heritage organizations, members of the agricultural community and other partners to network and exchange new ideas about the future of land conservation in our region.

The second day, Friday, May 6, will feature a Land Conservation Summit at the Blue Heron Center in Quiet Waters Park. The Summit is brought to you by the generous support of Partners for Open Space and the Town Creek Foundation. Instead of our normal workshop offerings, participants will be contributing to a facilitated conversation about the future of land conservation in Maryland with a diverse group of people and organizations. The Summit is an opportunity to brainstorm and share idea about issues and challenges, forge new partnerships and develop ideas for future collaboration.

We hope you will join us as we begin a conversation with innovative thought leaders from across the state. Our goal is to begin to identify ways to work together to address these challenges and ensure that our connection, to the land and each other, can be maintained - for all Marylanders.

Online registration is available for one or both days of the conference. Join MET for two full days of educational workshops, innovative discussions, peer-to-peer networking and an evening reception.
