Protecting what you love about Talbot County

The Talbot Preservation Alliance was founded in 1999 by Talbot County citizens with the common goal of preserving the unique and fragile environment of our county. We work to accomplish this objective through education, advocacy and, occasionally, through litigation.

We firmly support the principles of Smart Growth. We work in partnership with other community organizations, inside and outside our county, to encourage adherence to those principles by monitoring the enforcement of ordinances that support managed growth. Because land-use decisions are controlled by elected and appointed officials at the local level, we help to elect and support public officials who endorse smart growth principles.

As a Maryland non-profit organization, our work is accomplished through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers. Our non-partisan volunteers share our love for the fields, woods, waterways and small-towns that characterize our rural community.
