Patuxent Tidewater Land Trust is dedicated to the preservation of southern Maryland's agricultural, forested and open space land in the five tidal counties of the Patuxent River watershed (Prince George's, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles and St Mary's). PTLT’s mission is to protect environmentally and ecologically valuable land forever for future generations to enjoy. This involves efforts to sustain the region’s biodiversity and water resources through a network of protected landscapes; to advance the stewardship of forest and farm lands as vital local and regional economies; to preserve the region’s unique historic and scenic character for resident’s sense of place, visitor’s enjoyment, and prospective newcomer’s attraction; and to guide the pattern of future growth.

To accomplish this mission PTLT acquires (by purchase or donation) land and conservation easements limiting land development. Land trusts are committed to the protection of land in perpetuity. Every site and every situation is unique. The Trust works with landowners, communities and funders to address needs and circumstances of the present while also seeking to protect the interests of future generations.
