Luzerne County


Salem Township • 42 Acres

This conserved site is adjacent to PA State Game Lands 260 in Salem Township, Luzerne County. These 42 acres of protected land will extend a large wildlife habitat. Within a mixed hardwood forest, one-third of the property is wetland, home to beavers, waterfowl and other wildlife. Located at the headwaters of an unnamed tributary of the Susquehanna River, the landowner grew up on the property and watched as the large farm was divided and developed. With the help of the Land Trust, the Hosler family created an easement on this land to protect it from further development.
