About

Interested in protecting Maryland's historic, scenic, and natural landscapes? Maryland Environmental Trust (MET), a state-wide land trust, is looking for volunteers who enjoy visiting beautiful protected areas as Land Steward Volunteers. As one of the oldest and most successful land trusts, MET holds more than 1,075 conservation easements that protect more than 130,000 acres of farms, forests, cultural, and scenic areas. Each conservation easement is protected forever and monitored yearly for compliance. MET relies on volunteers to reach our goal of monitoring each easement, every year. Land Steward Volunteers visit a minimum of eight conservation easements per year to document changes using a short monitoring form and photographs. Conservation easements are throughout the state of Maryland, allowing Volunteers to choose their geographical preference.

Volunteers should be over 20 years of age, physically able to walk over potentially rugged terrain and have their own transportation and camera. MET Volunteers are also required to attend a 5-7 hour training offered every Spring and Fall at our Crownsville office. Please contact Wendy Hershey (410)-697-9522 or wendy.hershey1@maryland.gov, for more information.
