Mission Statement

The Maryland Environmental Trust (MET) aims to provide landowners with information and tools to permanently protect natural, historic and scenic resources.


As one of the oldest and most successful land trusts in the country, the Maryland Environmental Trust​ holds over 1,100 conservation easements preserving over 140,000 acres statewide.

From the Chesapeake Bay to the mountains of Garrett County, our Land Conservation, Monitoring and Stewardship, and Land Trust Assistance Programs promote the protection of open land. We also provide grants to environmental education projects through the Keep Maryland Beautiful Program.

Great place to volunteer! Everyone is super nice and helpful. MET does good work (read their mission statement) so your time is well spent here. You'll get plenty of opportunities to do the kind of activities you're interested in (GIS, land monitoring, writing/editing, etc.. many to choose from!), as well as learn about land conservation and stewardship in Maryland. I had a great time here and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a rewarding volunteer experience!

The mission of MET is a vital one for our state and country, i.e. to protect our natural, historic and scenic resources. It is very satisfying to be able to contribute to that effort. The volunteer work preparation is very well organized and communication is easy and thorough. It has been my pleasure to be able to volunteer for several years for MET.
