The Westmoreland Land Trust is an independent, nonprofit, all-volunteer organization formed in late 2007 in response to area citizens’ desire to retain the rural character of our region.
The Westmoreland Land Trust accomplishes this by preserving land of special value to our community, including land that has scenic, recreational, historical, ecological, or cultural value.
In the four years since its founding, the Westmoreland Land Trust has preserved some 115 in four distinct Westmoreland County communities:
- the 59-acre Otto and Magdalene Ackermann Nature Preserve in Ardara, North Huntingdon Township,
- 22 acres in Murrysville adjacent to the Lillian Kellman Nature Reserve,
- 21 acres in Rostraver Township along the Youghiogheny River,
- 3.5 acres in the City of Greensburg near Cabin Hill Drive, and
- 9 acres in Murrysville adjacent to Duff Park.
