The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy (WPC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the region’s exceptional natural places.
Since its founding in 1932, WPC has conserved more than 254,000 acres in Western Pennsylvania, restored watersheds, and saved wildlife.
WPC maintains and operates Fallingwater, a Frank Lloyd Wright masterwork and a symbol of the harmony between nature and humankind.
The Community Gardens and Greenspace program draws more than 12,000 volunteers annually to beautify communities in 20 counties.
A membership-based organization, WPC relies on those who also care about the region as it works to conserve our natural places for generations to come.
