Community Wildlife Habitat Initiative

Lancaster Conservancy has invested in preserving the area’s green spaces for 50 years. The Conservancy recently partnered with the National Wildlife Federation to form a Community Wildlife Habitat Initiative with the goal of working with local property owners, schools and communities in the planting of native trees and gardens. The objective of the initiative is to reduce storm water runoff and provide wildlife and pollinators with beneficial habitats, potentially connecting the habitats with others to form corridors for wildlife to thrive. 

As part of the program, property owners are offered the opportunity for a representative to visit their property to identify already present trees and plants, and offer suggestions to adapt the property to one that addresses runoff and increases beneficial habitats. The hour-long assessment is complimentary. 

To learn more about the program or to schedule a visit to your property, contact Linda Ferich at or visit
