Located less than 12 miles south of Washington, DC and opposite George Washington's Mount Vernon on the Lower Potomac River Estuary, Charles County, Maryland is in the middle of the megalopolis extending from Baltimore to Richmond, Virginia, yet is home to the largest contiguous forest in the state east of the Appalachians and until very recently was predominately rural in character with an agricultural economy that for 350 years was based on tobacco.

The Conservancy for Charles County was organized by local residents in 1996 to protect scenic, natural, forest, agricultural, rural and historic areas of Charles County for the benefit of the general public.

The Summer 2014 issue of our Newsletter, Charles County Landscapes, is linked at the bottom of Other Programs.
