Maryland: New Tool Provides Conservation Report Card for Every Land Parcel

Maryland: New Tool Provides Conservation Report Card for Every Land Parcel. “The Maryland Department of Natural Resources launched an innovative new tool to evaluate the conservation benefits and ecosystem ‘value’ of every parcel of land across the state. The Parcel Evaluation Tool was designed to identify and prioritize the conservation and protection of ecologically important, sensitive, and valuable land and watershed resources in Maryland for use by the department, land conservation organizations and trusts, local and state planners, and individual property owners.”
