Willistown Conservation Trustlast updated: March 2011

The mission of the Willistown Conservation Trust is to preserve the open land, rural character, scenic, historic and ecologically significant resources of the Willistown area and nearby communities, with particular emphasis on the Crum, Ridley and Darby Creek watersheds.

This mission is accomplished primarily by working with area landowners to acquaint them with the conservation options available to them in planning for the future protection and stewardship of their lands, and assisting them in the implementation of those plans. Conservation projects with landowners include the use of such options as estate planning tools, the donation and/or sale of fee title and partial interests in land (conservation easements), and involvement with various programs to encourage the conservation of scenic, recreational, agricultural, historic or environmentally significant land.

Willistown Conservation Trust seeks to develop a heightened sense of community and a strong land ethic within our program area. In addition to working with landowners, we educate and inform the general public about issues pertaining to land conservation in the program area, communicate with local municipalities regarding land-use policies and the Trust’s progress in the respective communities, and create positive working relationships with other conservation organizations committed to common goals.
