Mobile Seminar – South Mountain Conservation Landscape: Collaborative Land Protection and Stewardship Strategies
Seminar description: The South Mountain Conservation Landscape contains a wealth of valuable natural resources, important cultural and heritage sites, a rich agricultural legacy, and diverse recreational opportunities. Out of this landscape has emerged the South Mountain Partnership, a collaborative effort of many individuals, organizations, municipalities, state agencies, local businesses, and more. Together, these partners are cooperating to envision and build a positive, sustainable future for the South Mountain landscape. This Mobile Workshop explores many of the efforts and projects being pursued by the Partnership and its partners throughout this region, and will engage attendees around themes of land conservation, land stewardship, public programming, and best management practices. Stops include visits to Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve, Caledonia State Park, and Pine Grove Furnace State Park, with additional presentations on the Appalachian Trail, Central Pennsylvania Conservancy’s Ironmaster’s Mansion, Michaux State Forest’s Glatfelter Tract, and Trout Unlimited’s habitat restoration efforts!
