Lower Shore Land Trust


In the first 13 years, the Lower Shore Land Trust has assisted landowners in preserving over 10,500 acres of land on the Lower Shore.

The Lower Shore Land Trust is a private, non-profit, charitable organization formed in 1990. The Lower Shore Land Trust (LSLT) works with individual landowners who wish to protect the natural heritage of their property, so that the character of the land and the quality of life it nourishes will remain intact for the benefit and enjoyment of generations to come.

We assist landowners in Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties who wish to protect, in perpetuity, habitat necessary to sustain a diverse and healthy wildlife population, natural buffers that maintain water quality, and preserve scenic vistas and landscapes surrounding sites of historical and cultural importance. We wish to ensure that sufficient lands remain to support forestry and agriculture as viable industries on the Lower Eastern Shore.   CONTACT:   Lower Shore Land Trust
