The Independence Conservancy is a watershed-based land trust founded in 1999 in Aliquippa, PA. We are an all-volunteer group of environmental enthusiasts who share a vision of clean water, beautiful vistas and special places in the Raccoon Creek Watershed preserved forever.
We are a 501(c)3 Pennsylvania nonprofit watershed organization that has gone the extra mile toward long-term protection of our local natural resources by adopting land trust Standards and Practices. Land trusts are private, nonprofit organizations that work cooperatively with landowners to protect and conserve land for its natural, recreational, scenic, historic, or productive value – values that sustain life on earth.
Independence Conservancy is a well-respected partner in environmental restoration initiatives in the Raccoon Creek and nearby watersheds. We seek to protect open space, conduct volunteer cleanups, offer outdoor education, promote abandoned mine reclamation and offer assistance to like-minded groups.
