|Maryland Conservation Council
Protecting Maryland's Natural Heritage
* Scenic wild rivers and Appalachian hardwood forests in the
Allegheny Plateau of Western Maryland;
* Sandy beaches on the barrier islands of the Atlantic Ocean
with productive yet fragile bays behind them;
* Cypress swamps along an ancient black water river and vast
wetlands providing winter habitat for migrating waterfowl on the
Coastal Plain of the Eastern Shore;
* Geologically significant features and species rich forests and
rivers in the Piedmont;
* The Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries which once produced
vast quantities of aquatic resources.
Because Maryland also has a large and growing human
population, protecting our natural assets requires constant
monitoring at state and local levels. The Maryland Conservation
Council brings together organizations throughout the state to
create a strong voice for the environment and to coordinate
effective action by citizens with knowledge, expertise, and energy.
Developers, government agencies, and other groups whose plans
and programs impact the environment need the information and
the support or opposition that a coalition of environmentalists
can provide. Environmental organizations that monitor local
activities or fight to save threatened natural areas can benefit
from the advice, encouragement, and support of other MCC
organizations. We meet once a month to exchange information
and facilitate action.
You and your organization will benefit by tapping into the
reservoir of talent and resources of the Council. Please complete
the attached form and mail it today with your membership
dues. The types of membership are described below. The
membership year begins July 1 and ends June 30.
