Keystone Conservation Trust (KCT) assists the Kittatinny Coalition with Return on Environment studies.

KCT is a statewide non-profit organization passionate about saving Pennsylvania’s treasured places forever. Pennsylvania s extraordinary lands and waters are in peril. Every year tens of thousands of acres are lost forever and thousands of miles of streams flow polluted through the land. That’s why KCT feels a sense of urgency to increase the speed and capacity of conserving the natural and cultural resources, the lands and waters which form our Common Wealth. KCT’s purpose is to attract and provide new funding for the great works of local, state and national conservation groups, bring together and help align those working to conserve vital, large-scale landscapes, and share the latest information and expertise so that organizations can perform at the highest level to make the greatest impact on Pennsylvania’s threatened landscapes.

Keystone Conservation Trust is where philanthropy and effective action come together to achieve higher levels of conservation success. We work with all conservation groups on all kinds of conservation lands and waters.

And time is short. Our resources are too important to waste. Lets make a difference.now, not later.

Nature has been able to take back the land; however, if you look hard enough you can still find relics of history as you hike.
