Rockburn Land Trust (RLT) works with land owners and citizens in Maryland's Patapsco Valley Watershed to achieve protected land conservation for future generations. We do this through conservation easements, land monitoring, and advocacy. Some RLT easements are also on the National Register of Historic Places. RLT encourages the protection of history, architecture, wildlife, trees, waterways, and land on both large and small properties.
