Eastern Shore Land Conservancy is committed to preserving and sustaining the vibrant communities of the Eastern Shore and the lands and waters that connect them. We believe that when we conserve land and our natural habitats, we invest in our quality of life and preserve what makes the place we live valuable. Furthermore, we believe that by helping our towns to host the majority of the growth in the region, they are better suited to become models of innovative economic development while simultaneously doing away with the need for senseless sprawl that further cuts into our irreplaceable landscape.
