Patuxent Tidewater Land Trust

Mission :

The Patuxent Tidewater Land Trust (PTLT) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of agricultural, forested and open space land along the Patuxent River and within the Southern Maryland region.  The Trust recognizes that Southern Maryland 's natural beauty, rural character and its environmental and historical treasures are a heritage we must protect for future generations.


Through the use of conservation easements, land purchases and donations, and the purchase and donation of development rights, the PTLT is working to reduce sprawl and redirect development that is, among other things, decreasing land available for farming and other open space objectives, weakening the permeability of the land, causing siltation in surface waters and diminishing the quality of the area's drinking water, rivers, and of the Chesapeake Bay.  The Trust is committed to working with landowners to address individual needs and circumstances in ways that best preserve their land and our common heritage.
