At PHLT, protecting land and water is our mission and our passion. Pocono Heritage Land Trust (PHLT) exists to conserve land for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations. Formed to fill a need for local land conservation, our Land Trust now protects more than 4,000 acres, and has helped individuals, townships, boroughs, and the county to conserve many thousands more.
Here in Monroe County and throughout the Poconos, nature fills our lives. Traveling through this landscape means crossing bridges over sparkling trout streams. World-class views from Mount Pocono, Camelback, Delaware Water Gap, and other special natural places enrich our days and our lives. Outdoor recreation means more than just jobs and dollars from tourists and visitors -- it is a treasured part of our way of life and why many of us choose to live here. And that is true for everyone from fourth-generation fishermen and hunters to little kids chasing fireflies on a summer evening. Preserving our natural heritage ensures that our children and grandchildren will still have places to hike, bike, fish, hunt, see wildlife -- or just sit quietly and enjoy the beauty of nature.
