About Countryside Conservancy

Countryside Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting lands and waters in and near the Tunkhannock Creek Watershed for the public benefit now, and for the future.

Countryside Conservancy was established in 1994 by citizens concerned about the loss of distinctive features in our regional landscape in northeastern Pennsylvania. Our non-profit organization works within Lackawanna, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties to preserve lands through cooperative agreements with landowners and through direct acquisition with funding from both public and private resources.

To date, the Conservancy has given permanent protection to nearly 1,200 acres of lands and waters in northeast Pennsylvania. Some lands have been protected through private agreement with landowners, others through acquisition and ownership by the Conservancy. Lands owned by the Conservancy are open for public education and recreation. The Conservancy is also working to turn the right-of-way of the former Northern Electric Trolley in Lackawanna and Wyoming Counties into a non-motorized recreational trail.

Countryside Conservancy is a member of the Land Trust Alliance and of the Pennsylvania Land Trust Association.
