CRABCAKE: Scenic Rivers Land Trust and A Walk For The Woods (April 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

We all know about the big boys of conservation in the area. But you may not have known about the Scenic Rivers Land Trust.  In a nutshell, they work to identify land that can be preserved in perpetuity and then work with the landowners to make it happen. One HUGE success is the Bacon Ridge Natural Area which encompasses nearly 1000 acres of wooded beauty!

And on April 27th, they are hosting several guided hikes in this incredible spot. It is free, but they do ask you to sign up.

Have a listen as we speak with Nina Fisher, the President of the Board of Directors and Sarah Knebel who is the Conservation Director. Learn what they do and what you can do to keep our area as ecologically sound as possible!

CRABCAKE: The Scenic Rivers Land Trust

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 for the Woods on April 28th. Thank you to Scott MacMullan, “The Godfather of Annapolis Podcasts” and SRLT board member, for use of his office as a recording space.
