Dear Friends,

Since 1967, French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust has preserved the natural resources of the region. Your membership is critical to this mission. When you join, you can feel good knowing that you will make an immediate difference in the area we love. 

We now hold more than 145 conservation easements and have permanently protected more than 11,000 acres of open space.  In 2013 alone, the Trust protected over 800 acres in northern Chester County. The land we preserve is held in perpetuity.

We have fostered the development of the area’s trail network so that current and future generations can enjoy the open spaces, wildlife and fresh air.  We are proud that after more than thirty years of effort, we are also nearing completion of the ten mile French Creek Trail, available for hikers, equestrians and cyclists. 

Your membership makes all of this, and so much more, possible.

Please renew or join today to support our work through 2014.

Thank you!
