The Tinicum Conservancy was formed in 1992 by a group of residents who were concerned that larger, regional land trusts were not paying enough attention to land protection in our township.
The Conservancy has purposely maintained a grass-roots approach to land preservation by extensive use of volunteers and local professionals, a full-time Executive Director and two part-time staff.
The Conservancy has maintained a consistent level of successful land protection over its two+ decades. The first thousand acres were conserved by 2000; the 2,000-acre milestone was reached four years later; the 3,000-acre milestone in 2007; and the 4,000-acre mark in 2011. Today, nearly 4,900 acres in and around Tinicum are stewarded by the Tinicum Conservancy.
Tinicum Conservancy is an accredited land trust, a distinction first awarded in 2009 by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the the national Land Trust Alliance. Our accreditation was subsequently renewed in 2015.
