Ecology and Management
Conestoga Creek is managed for its habitat being of highest and best use.
Conestoga Creek overlooks the Conestoga River which empties into the Susquehanna River just beneath the Safe Harbor Dam.
This preserve was acquired as part of a nationally recognized landscape protection project known as the PPL Project. Funds for that Project were provided by the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, The Conservation Fund, Lancaster County, York County, PPL, Talen Energy, and Brookfield Renewable. The tracts that form the Conestoga Creek Nature Preserve were donated by Talen Energy and Brookfield Renewable.
