The Land Group and Orion Wildlife Launch Strategic Partnership

SALISBURY, MD – APRIL 4, 2022 – The Land Group and Orion Land & Wildlife Management are pleased to announce a strategic partnership aimed to promote land conservation and wildlife habitat restoration throughout the Chesapeake Region.

“This partnership has been a long time in the making,” said Ben Alder, Principal at The Land Group (TLG). “My work with Spencer Waller and Orion began over two decades ago, and it’s a true accomplishment to see our companies working together today. Orion’s wildlife restoration experience on the Delmarva, along with its expertise helping landowners navigate the myriad of conservation programs, is exactly what we want our clients and contacts to be able to access.  Utilizing Orion’s wildlife habitat restoration services brings immeasurable value to landowners and their properties.”

Together, The Land Group and Orion Land & Wildlife Management will be working from Virginia’s Eastern Shore to the upper Bay counties of Kent and Queen Anne in Maryland.  Principally, the partnership will provide on-the-ground restoration services and assistance to the existing TLG network of landowners. 

“The network of landowners built by The Land Group since 2004 is an impressive group of conservation-minded farm and timberland owners,” said Spencer Waller, Owner and Founder of Orion Land & Wildlife Management.  “Ben and I met many of these landowners in the 1990s when we first started in the conservation business.”

Since 2006, Orion Land & Wildlife Management has worked in every county on the Delmarva Peninsula, completing thousands of wildlife habitat restoration projects on private land.  Orion works one-on-one with landowners to create custom wildlife habitat restoration plans that meet their interests and the needs of their farms.

The Land Group provides land brokerage and consulting services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.  The “We Sell Dirt” group represents the largest portfolio of land available to purchase in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, totaling over 40,000 acres. Since 2015, The Land Group has completed transactions on over 46,000 acres of land and has generated $315M in gross sales. Headquartered in Salisbury, MD, the land brokerage and consulting firm is comprised of ten advisors throughout the Chesapeake Bay region.
