30 Days for 30 Years: Protecting Land and Water in Anne Arundel County
This year, Scenic Rivers Land Trust is celebrating 30 years of protecting land and water in Anne Arundel County. Since our first easement in 1989, Scenic Rivers has used land conservation easements to protect special places from development and provide tax incentives to property owners.
To date, we hold 66 conservation easements across the county, totaling nearly 2,900 acres—or about one percent of county land. Our goal is to double that amount. The fact is, when it comes to land conservation in our county, time is of the essence.
To kick off our 30th year celebration, we’re using the 30 days of the month of April (Earth Month!) to share 30 fun facts about Scenic Rivers’ work and the Bacon Ridge Natural Area, the largest property in our conservation portfolio and the host site for our Annual Walk for the Woods, via our social media channels. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to join in the fun. Plus, we’re even launching an Instagram account to get in the spirit of being 30!
And while we plan to celebrate this milestone all year (keep an eye out for details on a party planned for later in the year), our 30 Days for 30 Years celebration in April will culminate with our Annual Walk for the Woods on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 7 am to 3 pm at the beautiful Bacon Ridge Natural Area (Farm Road, Crownsville, MD).
Join us online all month and then join us outdoors on the 27th!
