Maryland's Streams

The Maryland Environmental Trust is a statewide land trust.

Garrett County Easement

Our mission is to provide landowners with information and tools to permanently protect natural, historic and scenic resources in the state.

Maryland Environmental Trust works with landowners and citizen land trusts to protect Maryland's most treasured landscapes and natural resources as a legacy for future generations.

As one of the oldest and most successful land trusts in the country, MET holds over 1,070 conservation easements preserving over 130,000 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.

MET also provides grants to environmental education projects through the Keep Maryland Beautiful Program.
