Lancaster County Conservancy

The mission of the Lancaster County Conservancy is to save and steward the ecosystems and landscapes upon which we depend for food, clean water and air, economic and public health, and the restoration of soul and spirit.

Established in 1969, The Lancaster County Conservancy is a private, membership-supported, non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Lancaster County's (PA) rapidly diminishing supply of open land.

With thousands of acres being lost each year to development, it is the Conservancy's purpose to maintain carefully selected portions of the county's open areas in their natural state.

The Conservancy focuses its energy and financial resources towards preserving these open-space areas for continuing public recreation and educational use and in providing methods and assistance by which concerned citizens can help protect these precious community assets through a variety of conservation tools.
