This property contains important springs and wetlands that drain into Plunketts Creek. The property also drains into Raspberry Run, a tributary of Bald Eagle Creek. As with most properties in northcentral Pennsylvania, this property filters and drains water that at some point enters the West Branch Susquehanna River and eventually the Chesapeake Bay.

Public views of this property are not limited to the township road that traverses part of the property. Because the property is on a ridge top, the public on state-owned lands to the south and on a nearby highway can also see portions of this property.
