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. Our mission is to educate children and adults about the natural world, preserve the land and its legacy and model responsible stewardship of the environment.
The Conservancy provides environmental education programs at two locations – our home base at Mt. Pleasant Farm in Woodstock and at Howard County’s Belmont Manor and Historic Park in Elkridge. Note: Mt. Pleasant Trails/Gardens open dawn to dusk daily. Belmont Manor and Historic Park open for scheduled events only.
The Conservancy is accredited by Maryland Nonprofits' Standards for Excellence
