French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust is a community-based organization whose mission is to
preserve, steward, and connect people to the land in northern Chester County.
French & Pickering works collaboratively with individual landowners, local and state government, and other conservation organizations to ensure the preservation of the French and Pickering Creeks watersheds, which contain some of the most scenic lands in Pennsylvania. Founded by Sam and Eleanor Morris in 1967, the organization has:
- Ensured the permanent protection of more than 12,500 acres of agricultural, natural, and park lands through donated and purchased conservation easements and public/private partnerships
- Created greenways and trails along the French and Pickering Creeks
- Continued to monitor and advocate stewardship of all lands protected by French & Pickering easements
All proceeds of the Annual Auction Party make it possible for French & Pickering to continue to protect and preserve the lands of your community.
