Special Record Workshop for Maryland Land Trusts on Tues., November 28
Keepers or Chuckers: Keys to Good Records Management

Do you know what land records you should keep and which you should chuck? Can you put your hands on critical property records when you need them? Do you know what’s in your property files? While it may not have all the excitement of acquisition, record keeping is essential for protecting your conserved lands.

Join Maryland Environmental Trust and Land Trust Alliance for a record training workshop on Tuesday, November 28. Leave the session understanding the importance of good record keeping, how to identify your critical records and how to plan for getting your records organized and protected for perpetuity.

This workshop is made possible thanks to sponsorship by the Land Trust Alliance. For more information on how to register for this workshop visit the registration website.

Past Land Trust Roundtable Series
Maryland Environmental Trust’s previous Land Trust Roundtable series focused on shared vision to tackle stewardship challenges around technology, volunteers, recordkeeping and monitoring. Through these series of meetings and conversations Maryland Environmental Trust developed a toolset to address these challenges.
