Mission Statement:

Wildlands Conservancy envisions an excellent quality of place in the Lehigh River valley and beyond ...

Wildlands Conservancy's mission is to preserve, protect, and enhance the land, water, ecological, and recreational resources of the region. We fulfill our vision and mission through involvement with many partners in broad-based educational programs, various land-protection and stewardship strategies, science-informed water quality and ecological restoration projects, comprehensive community planning efforts, plus greenway and recreational trail development.

About Us:


Since 1973, Wildlands Conservancy has been working to protect and enhance the quality of place that we all enjoy here in the Lehigh River watershed, as well as elsewhere in eastern Pennsylvania.

As a non-profit, member-supported organization, we work on ways to protect water quality throughout the watershed, and we assist efforts to create, enhance, maintain, and promote parks and trails. We have protected more than 40,000 acres of critical farmland and wildlands in eastern Pennsylvania. We also foster responsible stewardship of our resources through education of our youth and by raising the environmental awareness of the general public.

Nice size parking lot off of Cedar Crest plenty to say there's a nice walk you'll enjoy the scenery I went fishing right off of the park

I love taking my little one's for a walk around the trails. The wood trail is my favorite and it's so beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing kind of a walk.
