Conservation From Coast to Coast
The urgency to protect land in the U.S. has never been greater. Luckily, The Conservation Fund is well-equipped to help solve some of our nation’s most pressing challenges, like the rapid loss of forests, culturally significant sites, wildlife habitat and more.
Preserving a Historic Stop on the Underground Railroad in Pennsylvania
When we protect land, we also help to protect its story. In the 1800’s, this site, known as the Mifflin House property, was used as a safe location for enslaved African Americans seeking freedom to cross the Susquehanna River on their journey north via the Underground Railroad. By purchasing the land and safeguarding it from impending development, we ensure this important history is one step closer to being permanently preserved and not forgotten.
New Hampshire Forestland Conserved for Wildlife, Water and More
After a multi-year effort with the State of New Hampshire and other partners, we’ve completed the protection of over 6,300 acres of private forestland in the state’s Beebe River watershed. Located just north of Squam Lake, where the 1981 movie “On Golden Pond” was filmed, this iconic forested landscape and its aquatic resources support local jobs, ensure public recreational access, protect wildlife habitat and improve water quality for the region.
