A conservation easement was donated on this property by a couple who wanted to protect the family woodlands as well as a family homestead that was built in the mid 1800s. The property contains steep slopes, mature woodlands, high water table soils, and wetlands adjacent to Big Run, a high-quality native trout stream and tributary of Muncy Creek. In addition, the property is located next to the Loyalsock Trail and is in close proximity to the Tiadaghton State Forest. The easement allows the landowners to continue their traditional use and enjoyment of the property while permanently protecting its wildlife habitat and other natural resources.
