Save Woods & Water


Celebrate ExtraGive Outside!

Friday. November 20, 2020

During 2020 our woods & waters have been here to save us, now it’s our turn to save them. Your donation during Extraordinary Give will go the extra mile thanks to a $100,000 match, courtesy of our generous sponsors and donors. We’re inviting you to spend the day outside! Escape and recharge on over 40 miles of trails at our 47 nature preserves or RSVP and join us for a guided hike or outdoor workshop. We’ll even have a post-hike warming station with fire pits and a hot beverage at Climbers Run from 10-5pm.

Take a Hike then warm up at Climbers Run!

Stop by Climbers Run Nature Center any time between 10am – 5pm!

We encourage our community to head outside and enjoy the incredible power of nature to restore body, mind and spirit! Take a hike, meditate, fish, or bird watch at any of our 47 nature preserves! With over 40 miles of trails to explore, we invite you to spend your Extraordinary Give Friday outside!

We will also be offering multiple guided hikes and workshops that will happen throughout the day at Climbers Run and other nature preserves in Lancaster!

Warm up after your hike around one of several fire pits we’ll have crackling all day from 10am – 5pm at Climbers Run Nature Center. The Conservancy will also provide a steaming beverage to sip on as you soak in the beauty of this special place — our growing center for learning about the natural world.

Guided Hikes & Workshops

These small outdoor workshops and guided hikes are being offered for free as part of the Conservancy’s day-long outdoor celebration during the Extraordinary Give! We do respectfully ask that all attendees consider participating in this day of giving by supporting the Conservancy and your other favorite local organizations! Your donation to the Conservancy will go the extra mile thanks to a $100,000 match made possible by generous donors and corporate partners!
