For almost 20 years, Pennsylvania has been using an innovative approach to working with partners on conservation, sustainability, and recreation. This strategy is known as the Pennsylvania Conservation Landscape Program, and focuses on those special places where public land, sense of place, and diverse, sensitive natural resources intersect.

Berks County is in the unique and exceptional position of housing two Conservation Landscapes: The Kittatinny Ridge and the Schuylkill Highlands.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources (DCNR) recently published a video that highlights how the Conservation Landscape framework isn’t just good for biodiversity, but is also good for people.
