In Northumberland County: Belles

In 1997, the Merrill Linn Conservancy made its first purchase of land to protect 33 acres of the Montandon Wetland complex in West Chillisquaque Township in Northumberland County. Technically a swamp, we raised funds for its protection through a Keystone Grant and a match of locally-raised funds generated by a capital campaign.

Mixed deciduous woodland with variety of trees, swampland, Montandon wetlands to the south, bordered by historic canal towpath
