  • Mission:
  • The mission of ClearWater Conservancy is to promote the conservation and restoration of natural resources in central Pennsylvania through: land conservation, water resource protection, and environmental outreach to the community.

  • History:
  • ClearWater Conservancy is a Centre County based nonprofit land trust and environmental conservation organization formed in 1980 by a group of local citizens concerned about the area’s changing landscape. We have slowly shifted from an all-volunteer, grassroots organization to a professionally-staffed organization with 4 full-time and 2 part-time staff. We have a membership of more than 1,000 individuals and businesses. We obtained our first conservation easement in 1986, and since then have protected more than 1300 acres by conservation easements and 3000 acres through direct purchase and subsequent gift to Pennsylvania conservation agencies.
