Land Trust Roundtables

Maryland Environmental Trust’s Land Trust Roundtables series will discuss land trust stewardship challenges and a shared vision to address these challenges. Roundtable meetings will tackle big issues around technology; volunteers; recordkeeping; stewardship responsibilities and work to build a solution to solve these challenges.

Maryland Environmental Trust’s current Roundtables series will discuss land trust stewardship challenges and a shared vision to address these challenges. This year’s Roundtables will tackle big issues around technology, volunteers, recordkeeping, monitoring and stewardship responsibilities and work to build solutions. Land trust representatives are encouraged to attend these meetings and share their feedback with Maryland Environmental Trust and partner land trusts.

The kick off meeting, on August 30, 2016, focused on Stewardship monitoring and recordkeeping – developing common approaches and technologies. Participants were asked to confirm their largest stewardship challenges, discuss their organization’s methods, limitations and partner expectations and help identified strategies that support success.

The February Roundtable will focus addressing the challenge of monitoring and explore innovative stewardship solutions. Chesapeake Conservancy will describe a web-based mapping application that is being developed, in partnership with MET, to supports easement monitoring efforts.

Online registration is open for the February 28th Roundtable. For more information or to register visit the REGISTRATION WEBSITE.

Please RSVP by 12:00pm on Fri., Feb. 24
