Mission

In keeping with the tradition started by Merrill Linn, the mission of the Merrill Linn Conservancy is to preserve the land and waterways of Union, Snyder and upper Northumberland counties for scientific, historic, educational, ecological, recreational, agricultural, scenic, or open space opportunities through cooperative agreements with landowners.

Linn Conservancy volunteers work with owners of ecologically valuable land in Union, Snyder and upper Northumberland counties to preserve its natural beauty and diversity for future generations through conservation partnerships. Furthermore, we strive to educate the public on conservation issues critical to the health of our local environment and our planet.
