Maryland agriculture is vital to the long-term health of the state's economy, environment and quality of life. Maryland farmers - like homeowners and all residents - play a key role in protecting our state's natural resources, especially the Chesapeake Bay.
Maryland farmers are conservation leaders in the Bay region because they use various conservation measures to produce healthy crops and livestock while protecting the environment and maintaining profitable businesses. Well-managed agricultural land provides many more environmental benefits than developed land.
In addition to agricultural Best Management Practices cost shared directly through the Maryland Department of Agriculture and Natural Resource Conservation Service, the Carroll SCD welcomes the opportunity to partner with private organizations to provide assistance with stream restoration and other environmentally beneficial projects through various grant funding opportunities. If your organization is interested in partnering with us to provide services to landowners in Carroll County, please contact District Manager Matt McMahon or Grants Coordinator Gay Teada.
As with all of our programs and services, this opportunity is offered on a nondiscriminatory basis, without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or handicap.
