Great Give 2015


Every year the Anne Arundel Community Foundation puts on a 24 hour fundraising drive for all the non-profits of Anne Arundel County. This year it was on May5 - 6 and  was once again successful for us - YOU raised over $4,000 for land preservation! We thank you for that! We'll be putting towards supporting our outreach efforts for landowners, as well as monitoring the easements we hold.

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.
