History and Vision
We were first formed in 2000 by a group of dedicated individuals representing various conservation organizations and groups that actively protect natural habitats, historic resources and farmland in Lebanon County. Our common vision was to create an affiliation whose mission is to promote the conservation of natural resources, open spaces and agricultural lands through public awareness, education and scientific research.
In cooperation with neighboring conservancies and trusts as well as local and state governments, the Lebanon Valley Conservancy seeks to preserve our area’s unique qualities for the benefit of all.
