As the highest bidder at a public auction in the Summer of 2020, NPC conserved 112 acres adjacent to the Loyalsock State Forest. The property includes steep, forested hillsides, a trout stream, and a rocky cliff along Loyalsock Creek.

Dubbed the 'Bar Bottom' project, Bar Bottom is a Class A, naturally reproducing trout stream, that winds through the property. The property’s portion of Bar Bottom almost levels out and traverses a flat before entering the Loyalsock Creek. Sharing a boundary with the Loyalsock State Forest, a series of waterfalls can be found on the portion of the stream already on State Forest Land. Eventually, the property will become a part of the State Forest system.
