Lebanon Valley Conservancy

 

The mission of the Lebanon Valley Conservancy is the conservation and preservation of the unique cultural, historical and natural resources of the region for present and future generations.

The Lebanon Valley Conservancy is a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to promote the conservation and preservation of the unique cultural, historical and natural resources of our region, for the benefit of present and future generations.

We were first formed in 2000 by a group of dedicated individuals representing various conservation organizations and groups that actively protect natural habitats, historic resources and farmland in Lebanon County. Their common vision was to create an affiliation whose mission is to promote the conservation of natural resources, open spaces and agricultural lands through public awareness, education and scientific research. In cooperation with neighboring conservancies and trusts as well as local and state governments, the Lebanon Valley Conservancy seeks to preserve Lebanon's unique qualities for the benefit of all.

Our purpose is urgent: Did you know that Pennsylvania's population grew by 2.5% between 1982 and 1997, but its urbanized footprint grew by 47% over that time? That means that the third slowest growing state in the country developed the sixth largest amount of land. The state is squandering a key resource of competitive advantage: its superb natural resources.*
Simply said, productive farmland and open space is being lost to sprawling development...away from our urban centers and into our countryside.
