As a land trust, the French Creek Valley Conservancy allies with landowners who wish to conserve wildlife, forests, agricultural lands, and unique natural areas. Protected properties help to ensure that the watershed is safely developed, wildlife and water quality are preserved, and public access is protected. Properties and easements donated or otherwise acquired by the Conservancy are stewarded and legally protected in perpetuity, thereby conserving the health, beauty and quality of life in our watershed for future generations.
The French Creek Valley Conservancy works closely with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, The Nature Conservancy, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, and Audubon Pennsylvania, partners composing the French Creek Conservation Collaborative that provides outreach, education and technical assistance to local communities. In addition, the French Creek Valley Conservancy consults with the Allegheny Valley Conservancy, along with various state and federal agencies, local municipalities, businesses and other community conservation organizations.
