Over 10,000 Acres of Woods & Water Protected, Forever

Thanks to generations of conservationists like you protecting the land we love, the Conservancy has protected over 10,000 acres of woods and water, forever. From the Conservancy’s first efforts to “Save the Rock” (Chickies Rock, that is) over 50 years ago to our newly opened preserves along the Susquehanna River, and each of our almost 50 nature preserves in between, these protected acres represent what makes our home so special.

Make Your Gift Go the EXTRA Mile!

Learn more about the Conservancy’s efforts to restore our natural lands!

Lancaster Conservancy has protected over 10,000 acres of natural land in its 54-year history, but our mission does not stop there.

Our woodlands, meadows, and wetlands are increasingly fragmented by development and face threats from invasive species and a rapidly changing climate. These man-made pressures are destroying the ecosystems that we as humans are inextricably linked to. We have a responsibility to not just protect these places, but to restore them into thriving habitats that support life – including our own.

Discover how the Conservancy is taking action to steward the land we care for and the many folks who are lending a hand along the way.

Thank you to our generous Annual Sponsors!
