“Ground Zero” For Growth:

What about his future?


  • Private, nonprofit with 33 directors and 865 members (we need YOU!).

  • Protected 38,078 acres on 206 properties, and promote sound planning.

  • First Delmarva Nonprofit awarded the Standards for Excellence seal for ethics and accountability.


Our vision for the Eastern Shore (2050):

  • Our towns are vibrant and well defined;

  • Our farms, forests, and fisheries are thriving; and,

  • Our scenic, historic, and natural landscapes are protected.


The Eastern Shore’s population grew by 53% from 1970 to 2000.

The region’s population is projected to grow by 44% from 2002 through 2030.

The region’s developed acreage is projected to grow by 137% from 2002 through 2030.

That means 262,110 more developed acres and less farmed and natural acres.
