Make a Note...New Address & Phone!

Because of our generous and dedicated donors and supporters we are conserving more of our critical open space in northeastern PA than ever before! Over 17,000 acres conserved to date with thousands more acres of important natural lands yet to be conserved! To continue our work we needed more space.

We are vert happy to announce that we have relocated from the old extremely cramped quarters at 11 Carverton to a wonderful old farmhouse in Lehman with plenty of space to expand.

We wishes to thank each and every donor for making this amazing growth possible!
Please stop by anytime and check out the Land Trust’s new home!

Naturalist's Notes

Conservation Subdivision = Better Land Use

Many of our planning methods and zoning codes are based on archaic land use guidelines that have not been updated for many, many years. Because of this, we are very inefficient in the way we develop our open space. These inefficiencies lead to burdensome expenses that the municipality often times cannot cope with. Conservation Subdivisions represent a better way to develop our land that can ultimately reduce municipal expenses.
