Current Land Protection Projects
We currently have three major land conservation projects under contract for protection. We’re working closely with the neighboring communities to ensure these rare green spaces are permanently protected for the benefit of current and future generations. Learn more about the individual projects by following the links below to their respective pages.
Gateway Woods Conservation Project
The Gateway Woods Conservation Project is located in the Municipality of Monroeville, adjacent to Pitcairn Borough, and visible from Turtle Creek Valley communities. Conserving this 124-acre land would create 425 contiguous acres of green space by connecting Sugar Camp Park, Monroeville Community Park West, Monroeville Community Park East, and Mosside Slopes.
Lowries Run Slopes Expansion Project
Located in Ross Township along Lowries Run, this 24-acre green space is directly adjacent to ALT’s existing Lowries Run Slopes Conservation Area and would serve as a large connection to Ross Township’s Marion Doulton Green Space, thus creating a 67-acre contiguous greenway in this busy suburban setting.
Panhandle Greenway Conservation Project
Located in South Fayette and Collier Townships, the Panhandle Greenway Conservation Project comprises 221 acres of woodlands in the rapidly-developing and flood-vulnerable Robinson Run Watershed and along the scenic corridor of the popular Panhandle Trail. This “keystone” project would create an ecological, recreational, and place-making greenway unlike any in the region.
St. Johns Community Conservation Project
Allegheny Land Trust is excited to be working hand-in-hand with the Brighton Heights neighborhood deliver a natural stormwater management area on the former St. John’s Hospital site.
