Land Conservation

Learn more about our impactful land conservation efforts and how you can contribute to preserving our natural landscapes for future generations.

ClearWater Conservancy’s Land Conservation Program seeks to conserve ecologically important habitats in Central Pennsylvania for all time. As a nationally accredited land trust, we have demonstrated that we meet the highest national standards for excellence and conservation permanence. 

 

We believe people should be free to enjoy the land and its beauty and place a high value on public access and use.  Lands we want to conserve provide significant ecological function, are valuable habitats for wildlife, contain unique features or offer new recreational access.

Our primary methods for land conservation are conservation easement and land purchase. In addition, we provide technical assistance and information to landowners who want to improve and manage habitats on their own property.
