American Chestnut Land Trust Charity Profile

The American Chestnut Land Trust (ACLT) protects over 3,000 acres of wetlands, forest and farmland in rapidly developing Calvert County, Maryland. The crown jewel of our land trust is Parkers Creek (shown below)—the Calvert Cliffs and sandy shoreline in the vicinity of the mouth of Parkers Creek look much the same today as they did 400 years ago when Captain John Smith explored the Chesapeake Bay. A visitor today can still paddle a canoe over a mile and a half through unspoiled salt marshes and wooded freshwater wetlands and see little sign of human activity.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Arboretum at Warrior's Rest Sanctuary boasts more than 150 varieties of holly, not to mention unusual tree varieties such as Sequoia, Chinese fir and many deciduous and evergreen magnolias. Trees in the arboretum not only need pruning during the dormant season, but require ongoing vine and weed removal at their bases.

With 11 barns on ACLT properties and many more farm buildings, the ACLT needs a crew of volunteers trained and passionate about barn restoration and maintenance. Volunteers needed with light and heavy construction experience.

Volunteers needed to prepare our quarterly newsletter, The Watershed Observer, as well as invitations to our events for mailing to our membership. Preparation can be done from your home!

Every year from spring until fall the ACLT hosts guided canoe trips on Parkers Creek. Trips are scheduled at different times of the day on a Saturday (depending on the tide) and take about three hours. Canoe guides are responsible for not only "guiding" canoes, but pointing out some of the natural wonders of the area.

Join the crew that works to restore and maintain the historic Hance-Chesley cemetery located on ACLT property. Learn about the history of the cemetery, gravestone repair and cemetery gardening.

Volunteer naturalists are needed to lead guided hikes at different times of the year. We will provide training and ask that volunteers are available to lead one or two hikes per year.

The ACLT hosts a variety of events each year and also participates in other local organizations events by hosting a booth. We need people who enjoy setting up and decorating a booth, interacting with many different people, handing out ACLT information, and smiling!

From spring until fall the ACLT needs people to mow grass on trails and surrounding areas. The ACLT supplies all of the necessary equipment and gas, a defined area, and the frequency in which the area needs to be cut.

Water quality monitoring takes place on Parkers Creek once a month by volunteers. The process entails hiking to four different locations and taking water samples. We provide training and ask that WQM are available to take samples at least once per year.

Meet Land Manager Liz Stoffel and other volunteers to remove non-native invasive plants on various ACLT properties every Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 12 noon. Bring your favorite pair of work gloves and a bottle of water. We'll provide the equipment.

Non-native invasive species are detrimental to the health of native species. The ACLT will provide instruction, show where invasive plants and vines are of the greatest threat, how and when to remove them, and how and why they are here. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about native species in the mid-Atlantic area and what you can do to help create healthy landscapes
