Land Protection

To achieve our vision for Lancaster County, we have worked for over forty years to save important natural places for people and wildlife. As of 2013, we have protected over 5,200 acres, but we recognize the need to do more.  This is particularly critical in Lancaster County, where less than 16% of land remains as woodlands and other natural lands.
