Schuylkill Action Network

The Schuylkill Action Network (SAN) is a collaborative network of over 300 partner organizations working together to improve water resources in the Schuylkill River watershed. With “action” as SAN’s middle name, SAN partners have been working since 2003 to implement best practices across the Schuylkill River Watershed.

Alliance for Watershed Education

Get to know your watershed! The Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River is comprised of 23 environmental education centers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. The Delaware River is the longest undammed river east of the Mississippi, and its watershed stretches all the way into upstate New York, providing clean drinking water for more than 15 million people – that’s nearly 5% of the entire United States’ population! The Delaware River watershed provides important ecological habitats to a multitude of species, and provides recreation for cyclists, hikers, paddlers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Explore. Enjoy. Engage. The 23 education centers in the Alliance share a mission to collectively increase and enhance constituent appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of the Delaware River watershed.

Schuylkill Highlands Conservation Landscape

The Schuylkill Highlands Conservation Landscape is a group of local, county and state governments, land trusts, nonprofit organizations, watershed associations, and business representatives in a six-county area working together to protect, connect and sustain the amazing natural, recreational, and cultural gems in the Schuylkill Highlands. We are a diverse group of partners completing big picture projects together, that require complex cross-jurisdictional approaches. Our collaborative approach acts on a targeted set of goals using the power of partnership to advance our work together.

The Schuylkill Highlands Conservation Landscape is a public-private partnership promulgated by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources in 2006 entrusting Natural Lands to administer.

Conservation Landscapes have been established in eight defined areas in Pennsylvania, where there are strong natural assets, local readiness, and buy-in and they receive focused state-level investment from PA DCNR.

Kittatinny Ridge Conservation Landscape

The Kittatinny Ridge—also known as Blue Mountain and North Mountain in some regions—runs through Pennsylvania for 185 miles from the Delaware Water Gap to the Mason-Dixon Line. The Ridge is the first prominent landscape feature you encounter as you move north or west from Philadelphia, and it marks the entrance to Pennsylvania’s Ridge and Valley Region. It provides the scenic backdrop to life in 12 counties, and is considered the most resilient landscape in the state for adapting to a changing climate.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) designated the Kittatinny Ridge a Conservation Landscape (one of eight in PA) in 2018. Founded on a “sense of place,” a Conservation Landscape is a large region where residents, local officials, organizations, and agencies work together to drive strategic investment and actions around sustainability, conservation, community revitalization, civic engagement, and recreational projects. The landscape has strong natural assets, local readiness and buy-in, and state-level investment and support.
