    The Western PA Conservancy

    The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy is Pennsylvania's largest private land conservation organization. It has one essential purpose - to conserve water, land and wildlife.

    Since 1932, the Conservancy has protected nearly 200,000 acres of prime natural lands throughout western Pennsylvania. Nearly all projects are sold, at cost, to public agencies for parks, forests and game lands. The land is then available for the enjoyment of all people, for all time, and the money is recycled into new land acquisition projects.

    Western Pennsylvania Conservancy acquired much of the land for five of Pennsylvania's state parks (Laurel Ridge, McConnells Mill, Moraine, Ohiopyle, Oil Creek), over 25,000 acres of State Game Lands, and more than 19,000 acres of island and shoreline property along the Allegheny and Clarion Rivers. Other projects include Hickory Creek Federal Wilderness, David M. Roderick Wildlife Reserve, Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve, and Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's world-famous architectural landmark. The Conservancy also has protected significant natural areas harboring special concern plants, animals, and communities such as Wolf Creek, Pine Swamp, Wattsburg Fens and Tytoona Natural Areas.
