Westmoreland Conservancy is an all volunteer, non-profit, 501c-3 Corporation dedicated to acquiring and preserving rural and rustic lands for the public good. The Conservancy acquires property through land gifts, private and state grants, and monetary donations (which are tax deductible). The Conservancy has particular interest in land which contains special features (scenic, historic, biological, or endangered and rare species). It also desires to preserve land which provides unique flora, fauna, streams, etc., or land which, because of its location, can help connect reserves and provide “green” corridors. The Conservancy has received several citations for community service and is nationally accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.
