Tinicum Conservancy has protected 86 acres of exceptional value stream and forest land with a new conservation easement.

Thanks to new landowners, an 86-acre property located in the Little Tinicum Creek watershed will be protected forever. The property includes a home and historic barn that dates back to the early 1800’s surrounded by mostly forested and rugged terrain, with a stream that feeds Tinicum Creek. The creek is classified as a Pennsylvania Exceptional Value Stream—the highest designation in Pennsylvania and one of only two such streams in all of Bucks County.

“We are so grateful for their commitment to conservation,” said Jim Engel, the Conservancy’s Executive Director. “Their property is in an area that’s rich with natural features but where conservation has been limited until now. By preserving this land, they’ve created a lasting legacy for their family. This is a crucial step towards protecting more properties in this top-priority area.”

Tinicum Conservancy has now protected 5,133 acres with 125 conservation projects in six townships located in upper Bucks County.
