Your Local Land Trust

We are a land trust dedicated to the protection and preservation of the natural, historic, agricultural and scenic resources in our region. Manada Conservancy focuses on our local area and its members are familiar with with specific needs and pressures on land in our local municipalities.

The Conservancy was formed as a private, charitable organization that accepts financial donations, donations of land and conservation easements.  We also make use of grants, where available, to supplement our project expenses. The Conservancy holds the land and easements and the land is left in its natural state into perpetuity.

The Conservancy is a member of two professional organizations, the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association and the National Land Trust Alliance. We have adopted and abide by the Land Trust Alliance Standards and Practices.

For examples of our projects and how they were protected, please see Our Projects.
