About Us

Edwin Remsberg

From the Mason-Dixon Line to the Chesapeake Bay, and from the Gunpowder River to the Susquehanna, Harford County contains some of Maryland’s loveliest and most varied countryside.

Located right on the busy corridor between Baltimore and the major cities of the Northeast, Harford County has faced considerable development pressure since the 1960s. The area is unique in that it still has ecologically-vital tidal marshes, rolling uplands, clear streams, a viable and diverse agricultural economy, and valuable forests.

Our History

Harford Land Trust was organized in 1991 by local residents to ensure that important natural systems and our most productive landscapes remain intact. For 30 years, the organization has preserved Harford’s most valuable lands and insisted that development respect and complement the values of farms and natural lands.
