Who We Are

We are a 501(c)3 land conservation nonprofit created in 1993 to help local people save local land. 

OUR MISSION is to conserve and care for local land for the health and well-being of current and future generations. OUR VISION charts a path for a resilient region with abundant green space that is easily accessible and recognized as essential to the quality of life for all.

We are a nationally-accredited conservation land trust, which helps local people save local land. We do this for the benefit of future generations to ensure our communities will have clean water to drink, fresh air to breathe, and maintained trails to recreate on.

Our assets are our people and our places. We are made up of a talented and knowledgeable team of staff, Board of Directors, and hundreds of volunteers all offering thousands of hours of dedication to our mission and passion for conservation. Our conservation areas are sprinkled throughout Allegheny and Washington Counties in communities, and are neighbored by passionate residents who become our volunteers, donors, and explorers.
