What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Land Conservation and Planning

We are indebted to the visionary landowners we work with every year. Each presents a compelling case for conservation, and more importantly, a heartfelt desire to infinitely sustain all of the nature-made moments they know and wish to pay forward.

Through easement, acquisition and a full spectrum of planning expertise, Wildlands brings under protection high-conservation-value lands situated on and in proximity to South Mountain, the Lehigh River Corridor, the Kittatinny Ridge (Blue Mountain) and special natural areas in the Pocono portion of the Lehigh River watershed.

In addition to holding 70 conservation easements, Wildlands owns and manages nine nature preserves that total more than 2,600 acres and are open to the public.

Population(s) Served

Wildlands Conservancy's Rivers Program is dedicated to protecting, preserving and enhancing the water resources of our streams and rivers and is focused on the Lehigh River watershed.

Population(s) Served

The more than half a million individuals who have participated in Wildlands Conservancy’s Environmental Education Department programs are an important legacy of the founders of Wildlands Conservancy. Those former students, who once romped through the meadows to learn about habitats and waded into the creek to understand the importance of healthy streams, are now using the knowledge they gained to preserve open space and protect drinking water sources. Today, most leaders in education, government and business believe that an environmentally literate citizenry is vital to the health of our nation and the world. Wildlands Conservancy agrees. We have been working towards that goal for over 35 years.

Population(s) Served

Wildlands Conservancy's Trails and Greenway program is to plan for future recreational needs of an expanding population -- all in balance with the need to conserve natural habitats.

What we do:

Support existing pathway projects, foster new pathway projects, and inspire communities by demonstrating the potential for creating a network of pathways in the Lehigh Valley.

Educate the public, government, and businesses about the economic, environmental, recreational, and health benefits of pathways.

Promote pathways, trails, and alternative options for the transportation.
