From MET’s webpage on the event:

Each year, this Conference gathers the land trust community and its partners to connect, learn, share, and celebrate our collective work. It is also an opportunity to look to the future and imagine what must be done to ensure that land conservation remains a central value in our communities.  The conference offers the time and place for all present to consider how our work is advancing the broad community goals for health, vitality, and the future well-being of all Marylanders.

This year, MET plans to host a two day event. Day one (May 16) will feature our traditional conference offerings including a keynote, special lunch speaker, education sessions and workshops and networking opportunities. Themes for this year’s education sessions include: Conservation Innovation in Agriculture; Frontiers in Conservation Financing and Advanced Topics in Conservation. …

The Land Conservation Symposium is on day two (May 17) and is an opportunity for newly elected and veteran county representatives and administrators to gather and discuss how State conservation programs and land trusts can be a useful tool for advancing the quality of life and economic vitality goals for counties, cities, and towns. Please check back often as additional details are still being confirmed.

Admission costs are $100 for a single-day registration or $185 for both days. A limited number of guest rooms are available for those who wish to stay overnight. For more information, check out the registration link.
