Mission or Purpose

The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County focuses on establishing conservation corridors, protecting historic sites, providing walk-able communities through trail linkages, and offering ecological education and outreach programs for professionals, students, and under served members of the community. We like to think of our combined efforts as providing “TLC” for the environment, as well as for the residents of Southern Chester County. Our goal is to provide meaningful, hands-on interaction with the land, that not only feeds our bodies, but also nourishes our health, our creativity, and our spirits.
