The Howard County Conservancy

The Howard County Conservancy is a local non-profit environmental education center and land trust. The Conservancy was founded by a group of local citizens in 1990 to help preserve the natural environment, agricultural farmland, and unique historic sites in Howard County. Headquartered at Mt. Pleasant Farm in Woodstock, Maryland, a 232-acre farm that is 300 years old, the Conservancy offers dozens of year-round educational programs for adults and children, hosts special events, provides numerous volunteer opportunities, and provides Howard County residents with information about land conservation. The Conservancy protects land by acquiring it through gift or by obtaining a conservation easement.

"This is a lovely place. Great places to hike around and go with the kids. They have a nice kids area inside with books and educational materials. They are always doing events there for both adults and kids. I really like bringing the kids there. "

"Mt Pleasant is a beautiful property. I brought my 2 year old son there and we took a walk around the property. They had mowed nice wide paths through the tall grass and it gave you a great opportunity to get in there an hear all the nature sounds. We counted birds nests and checked out every butterfly and bug. Plenty of fun things to look at. To top it off we went to check out the goats which he thought was a blast. We will absolutely go back. Great place for a stroll."
