The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is conducting a statewide public survey to help set their priorities in land acquisition, conservation, and recreation — there are several questions related to the maintenance and interpretation of historic sites so it’s a great opportunity to show how important Maryland history is to you.

The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete and the results will be incorporated into the Land Preservation and Recreation Plan, which is required to receive federal funding from the National Park Service’s Land and Water Conservation Fund.

Did you know? One of the top reasons people visit Maryland’s State Parks is for the historic resources! The Maryland Department of Natural Resources stewards more of the state’s historic and architectural resources than any other entity.

Preservation Maryland has entered a year-long partnership with Maryland State Parks and Friends of Maryland State Parks to help identify, document, and prioritize the needs of these resources in the face of a limited budget and large project backlog. Your participation and support of Maryland’s historic sites in this survey will help make the case for additional resources for evaluation and maintenance.
