It takes a village.

Many people and organizations in the Pennsylvania Wilds are working as stewards of the region’s natural resources.

From private citizen conservationists, to County Conservation Districts and Planners, State and Federal land managers, local land trusts, watershed organizations, sportsmen’s groups, wildlife conservation non-profits and private sector companies – an entire movement is dedicated to sustainable resource management.  These dedicated individuals strive to maintain the legacy of conservation that occurred in the region a generation ago, and the assets that are here today because of it.

And you can be one of them!
