By the year 2030, ESLC seeks to protect 50% of the Delmarva Peninsula with the support and partnership of multiple conservation-based organizations, the Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia state governments, the private sector, and forward thinking landowners.
Aimed at protecting the peninsula’s rich heritage, Delmarva Oasis will act as a national model for landscape-level conservation supporting thriving rural economics, strong prosperous towns, and protecting this critical ecosystem.

Our aim is to protect the largest contiguous block of productive farmland in the mid-Atlantic region. We will preserve nearly $15 billion in ecological benefits that support important regional industries that rely on fisheries and tourism. We are working to sustain the region’s treasured culture and heritage.
