Pennsbury Land Trust

The Pennsbury Land Trust helps protect the beauty of Pennsbury Township by preserving its natural, agricultural, and historic resources, including farmland, wetlands, forests, historic buildings, and scenic open space.

One way the Land Trust conserves land is through easements. When it accepts a conservation easement, the Land Trust makes a commitment to protect it from degradation and promotes responsible care by the landowner.

Our mission is to serve the needs of Pennsbury Township in the preservation, conservation, and stewardship of open space including important agriculturally productive lands and natural areas.

It is our role to

  • Assist township officials in decisions regarding open space planning and acquisition
  • Provide assistance to landowners who protect their properties through conservation easements
  • Serve as a liaison with other conservation and historic preservation organizations
  • Purchase development rights and accept lands and conservation easements from donors, including developers
  • Work with township staff to manage and improve existing open space and trails
