PTLT Weed Warriors!

CSM students ready to attack Alien Invasive Plants!

Frank gave a class/workshop on alien invasive plants and vine removal from trees at the College of Southern MD, Leonardtown Campus, on April 7, 2017.  About 40 students and 2 instructors participated.  It was a great group of students who made short work of helping save the trees on campus.  To join the Weed Warriors activities (generally in the fall and winter), or for more info, contact Frank at

Mapping at Myrtle Point!

A great group of PTLT volunteers (and “Helen” the dog) assembled to help update the Trail maps at Myrtle Point Park on March 25, 2017.  After hiking the trails, adding GPS points, and assembling the combined notes, volunteers will now create a new map and tri-fold trail guide for visitors to the park.

PTLT: Mission

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 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. 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.
