Improving the quality of life on Maryland’s Eastern Shore through conservation.
ESLC promotes land conservation and planning that provides public access to open space, including parks, the Chesapeake Bay, farmland, hiking trails, urban gardens, and other parts of the Eastern Shore’s rich heritage.
Eastern Shore towns should be vibrant and well-defined. We are working to help our towns host most of the growth in the region, become models of innovative economic development, and provide plenty of open, green spaces.
As one of the country’s most vulnerable landscapes to flooding, erosion, and sea level rise, the Eastern Shore can become a national model for preparedness and coastal resilience in rural communities.
It’s time for conservation on the Delmarva Peninsula to aim higher – much, much higher. While biodiversity continues to diminish at alarming rates, new roads and proposed bridges further connect us to a I-95 corridor that opens our uniquely positioned peninsula for further development and loss of natural habitats. Through the lens of legendary conservationist and author E.O. Wilson’s Half-Earth, it has become clear that securing half of what we have for nature and food production is the only solution to protecting the valuable resources and quality of life that we depend on. Click below to learn how ESLC is uniquely positioned to organize and lead the Delmarva Peninsula’s boldest, environmentally focused initiative in its history.
