White Rocks Acquisition Project a Success


Although this success officially took place back in February; The Conservation Alliance just learned about it – so to us – it's breaking news and we want to celebrate!

Because of the hard work of Conservation Alliance grantee, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, 840 acres have been permanently protected in Pennsylvania. 

We supported the Appalachian Trail Conservancy's White Rocks Acquisition Project to preserve 1,050 acres of open space and wildlife habitat. In 2011, ATC purchased and protected 840 acres, which will enhance the Appalachian Trail experience and provide protection to critical groundwater recharge areas.
