Thanks to our board member, David Moulton, for taking the lead and developing and obtaining new signs for PTLT to post on the properties we protect.  If you see them around southern Maryland, you can delight in the fact that these places will be protected from development FOREVER!


You may make a donation to PTLT to help purchase signs.  $25.00 pays for a heavy gauge aluminum signs, metal t-posts, and hardware.  Thank you for helping to spread the word that open space CAN be preserved!

PTLT Lands a Valuable Grant

This winter PTLA received a prestigious Janice Hollmann grant to further its land conservation efforts. 
The $2,000 grant awarded by the Maryland Environmental Trust will be used to help PTLT underwrite its administrative and outreach needs for our outreach work to property owners.
Hollmann Grants are awarded to land trusts within Maryland. All grants require a 100 percent match from the land trust of in-kind services and privately raised funds and are subject to a competitive application process.
“We’re delighted to receive this grant for a number of reasons,” says PTLT President Frank Allen. “Besides helping further our mission, earning a Hollmann Grant demonstrates to the wider world of conservation the depth and breadth of our organization’s growth and accomplishments since its founding 23 years ago.”

"The beauty of the County ... and needs to be preserved for future generations to enjoy."

"The beauty of the County is partly what drew me back and needs to be preserved for future generations to enjoy. As an active hiker, kayaker, fisherman and hunter, I hope my participation in organizations like PTLT will help ensure the prospect of ongoing rural beauty."
