The Scenic Rivers Land Trust (SRLT) operates within the
Severn, South, Patuxent, Rhode and West River watersheds. SRLT
works with landowners to create small private conservation
easements as well as conservation easements on large parcels. A
conservation easement is a legal agreement between a landowner and
a land trust that permanently protects property through the
easement deed. The owner and land trust work together to determine
the amount and type of development that can take place in the
future within the conservation easement deed.
This week, we sit down with SRLT President, Nina Fisher and
Easement Outreach Coordinator, Sarah Knebel to talk about their
mission, their vision, and their upcoming event Walk in the Woods
on April 28th. Thank you to Scott MacMullen, "The Godfather of
Annapolis Podcasts" and SRLT board member, for use of his office as
a recording space.
