Become a Conservation Champion

Partner in Our Future as a Member of the Conservation Champions Circle

Scenic Rivers Land Trust is committed to protecting the forests, wetlands, farmlands, shorelines, and other open, natural spaces that make Anne Arundel County special. And so are you.

Over the last 30+ years, we’ve built a reputation as a trustworthy partner, working with conservation-minded landowners, state and county government, and others to conserve over 3,200 acres of open land.

We want to double that in the next 10 years.

As a nationally accredited land trust, Scenic Rivers has the experience and expertise to make a significant impact on the landscape of our community.

With your support, Scenic Rivers will have the financial stability necessary to pursue years-long partnerships with landowners to protect their undeveloped land—forever.

We can’t do this without you.

Influence the future and become a Conservation Champion today.
