Maryland Environmental Trust Celebrates Protection  Over 100,000 Acres Of Open Space In Maryland

GLYNDON, MD (September 25, 2003) — The Maryland Environmental Trust (MET) will celebrate its protection of more than 100,000 acres of Maryland’s natural environment to date on Saturday, Oct. 4 from 2-5 p.m. at the Green Spring Valley Hounds Club. The ceremony will allow MET to specially thank more than 700 easement donors and 54 local land trusts throughout the state that built this legacy.

Since its creation in 1967 by the Maryland General Assembly, the MET has protected Maryland's natural environment-farm and forestland, significant natural areas, historic sites, Chesapeake Bay shoreline and properties with scenic features.

The 100,000-acre landmark makes MET one of the largest land trusts in the country in terms of acreage preserved. The 100,000 acres include between 75,000 and 80,000 of donated easements, the dollar value of which is approximately $300 million.
