On Friday November 16 we join our non-profit community partners and the
Lancaster County Community Foundation for the Extraordinary Give.
Help us Save Woods & Water !
Your contribution on November 16 helps ensure more wild and natural lands like Tucquan Glen. Watch our short video below to see the Conservancy in action!!
The Lancaster Conservancy has been working for nearly 50 year to provide wild and forested lands and clean waterways for our community. The Conservancy cares for over 6,000 acres of natural lands with 40+ miles of hiking trails and 35+ miles of streams. The wild lands that we protect and steward are open to the public from dawn to dusk, 365 days per year. We have protected some of the most beautiful and beloved natural places in the area – places like Welsh Mountain, Tucquan Glen/Pyfer, Kellys Run and Shenks Ferry Wildflower preserves Taking the long view, we care for our land in perpetuity, preserving biodiversity, promoting healthy ecosystems, and building partnerships for generations to come.
While protecting and stewarding these natural lands remains our priority we also recognize the need to educate the public about our biggest concerns and challenges. With this in mind we engage the community through initiatives like Lancaster Water Week, Pollinator Park, workshops, demonstrations, hikes, and work days that allow the public to immerse themselves in nature. Our Climbers Run Nature Preserve & Education Center is crucial in engaging the public through social and educational events, which include direct environmental education of over 1,000 school students on an annual basis.
