Outdoor Activity · Hidden Gem
The American Chestnut Land Trust (ACLT) is a local land trust in Calvert Co., Maryland, an hour's drive from both D.C. and Baltimore. 22 miles of free trails, guided canoe/kayak trips up the beautiful creek, and lots of events and activities celebrating this beautiful region and the Chesapeake Bay.

Thousands of lbs of naturally grown produce is donated to a local food pantry annually. So many ways to get involved with caring for the land and sharing it with the community!
