Membership & Donations & our Market place
Together, with you as a member
- We’ve helped keep iron and acid mine drainage out of our local creeks. At Tanoma alone, if left untreated, this discharge would impact the headwaters of Crooked Creek with approximately 23 tons/year of iron (Fe).
- We have been able to offer educational programs on environmental related issues and other topics of interest to the community.
- We are able to publish a quarterly newsletter with project updates, information on the conservancy projects, topics including wetland plants, rain gardens, and other issues concerning the environment.
- EC were able to hold our Tanoma AMD Wetlands Educational Site grand opening to unveil our new interpretive signs on October 4th, 2008.
- Our future plans for Tanoma also include the development a brochure that summarizes the important aspects of the Tanoma AMD Treatment System Wetlands to use when navigating the interpretive trail. And adding signage related to the wetland plants in the area. EC plans on holding annual Tanoma educational events each year.
- We’ve achieved and continue to achieve lasting results in Indiana County and are on our way to helping clean up rivers and places as far away as the Chesapeake Bay.
- Your continued support is crucial to our work.
What you gain
- It’s more than a membership. It’s about taking ownership of where you live, work, and play.
- The number one benefit of membership in the Conservancy is the knowledge that together we can make a greater impact in preserving our region’s natural lands, water and wildlife than by acting alone. Membership in the Conservancy bolsters our ability to influence public decision makers on environmental policy issues at the local, state and national level. Your membership is vital to providing the resources we need to protect our waters, our land and our wildlife. Together we can do more!
- With your membership you will also receive our quarterly newsletter and be invited to attend our annual membership meeting and picnic at Blue Spruce Park where you will vote on the board membership and have a say in the work of the Conservancy
