The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy engages on a variety of public policy issues that support or impact our mission. We take a collaborative and strategic approach to public policy by working with our partners to achieve the best possible outcomes for conservation.
Issues and Positions
The Farm Bill
The nation's agricultural policy legislation is also the largest source of investment in conservation in the country.
Abandoned Mine Lands
Pennsylvania's mining legacy has created a $15 billion cleanup challenge that will require an enormous effort to fix.
