2015 Walk for the Woods
On behalf of the Scenic Rivers Land Trust board, I would like to thank all in the community that took part in our 10th Annual Walk for the Woods on Satuday, April 18th. Over 450 of our County neighbors, from pre-schoolers to empty-nesters, joined us for nature hikes in Anne Arundel Recreation and Park’s beautiful Bacon Ridge Natural Area in Crownsville.
Earlier in the week, County Executive Schuh helped us thank the many community members and business sponsors that make the Walk for the Woods possible. Bacon Ridge Natural Area is an incredible, nearly 1,000-acre, permanently protected wilderness right in our midst. Scenic Rivers looks forward to continuing to work with landowners to protect legacy landscapes throughout the entire South River Greenway and other watersheds in Anne Arundel County.
We look forward to your support for Scenic Rivers Land Trust to preserve more of Anne Arundel County’s heritage during the Great Give on May 5th and 6th.

SRLT Announces Goal to Protect 5,000 Acres by 2016
SRLT released its Campaign to 2016 on the summer solstice, the date with the most daylight hours and the perfect time to launch such a major undertaking. You can find our "Building on Success...Protecting Priority Open Space in Anne Arundel County for Wildlife and People" Campaign to 2016 here.
SRLT's 50th conservation easement, on the Patuxent River in Lothian.
Since 1988, the Scenic Rivers Land Trust (SRLT) has been protecting land in Anne Arundel County. We work with landowners to safeguard their land in the manner that best suits their needs and priorities. Our professional staff guides landowners in the creation of legal land preservation agreements that define how their property will be protected and can make them eligible for significant property tax savings, large charitable deductions and estate tax savings. SRLT currently manages conservation easements on 60 properties, totaling over 2,600 acres. SRLT also works with Anne Arundel County and other local government entities to provide on-the-ground support and research that informs the selection of priority lands for government purchase or protection. This work has resulted in the protection of thousands of additional acres.
