We're almost at our goal!
There's still time to support our Stewardship Program
Please help us reach our goal of 5 new monthly supporters!
school garden You have helped us protect the land we all love- over 18,000 acres of working farms and forests, scenic landscapes and our natural heritage! Thank you! But protecting the land is only the first step. We need your ongoing support to uphold conservation values on protected lands and to ensure that landowners are getting the best information about best land management resources.

Please consider helping LSLT with a monthly gift. $10, $20 or $50 a month helps us leverage support to continue outreach to the community and build new support for land conservation. Your gift support the programs right here on the Lower Shore!

Meet Our Interns!
Tracy Lind has been an active volunteer with LSLT since 2011. 

She has spent much of her time traveling across the United States and Canada, exploring natural areas on foot and bike.  This past summer, Tracy completed a Backcountry Internship with Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. She traveled trail-less wilderness in the backcounty to protect and record natural and cultural resource conditions. Tracy is a member of the Eastern Shore International Mountain Biking Associating, where she volunteers building single track dirt trails in Pocomoke City. In 2012, she graduated from Salisbury University with a degree in Environmental Studies, a minor in Biology, and a focus in Outdoor Leadership.  Tracy is currently volunteering with the Lower Shore Land Trust as the Stewardship Coordinator Intern.
