Galena, Maryland – February 26, 2008 – Eastern Shore Land Conservancy (ESLC) a private, nonprofit land conservation organization dedicated to the preservation of farmland and habitat on the Eastern Shore announced the opening of its second regional office in downtown Galena. Opened late last year, the new office, located at 100 South Main Street, will help staff focus on regional land protection efforts on the Upper Shore. An Open House and official Ribbon Cutting was held on Tuesday, March 4 from 4:30-7 p.m. To see photos from the Open House, please click here.

“We are thrilled to finally have a regional presence in our Northern counties and are so grateful to our partners and dedicated members for helping us get to this stage,” said Rob Etgen, ESLC Executive Director. “Having a local office in the counties we serve will really enhance our efforts to more effectively coordinate with towns, counties and local groups to protect and preserve our small towns and farms.”

Three full-time staff will work out of the Galena office, including land protection specialist Sandra Edwards, stewardship manager Vikram Krishnamurthy and land use planner Morgan Ellis. Two full-time staffs work out of ESLC’s Southern Office in downtown Cambridge, which was opened in early 2007. The remaining members of ESLC’s 12-person staff will continue to be housed in ESLC’s Queenstown headquarters.
