The Central PA Conservancy (CPC) is acquiring one of Pennsylvania’s most unique habitats at the headwaters (east branch) of a nationally prominent trout fishery, the Letort Spring Run, in Cumberland County and South Middleton Township. CPC has secured a 2-year Purchase Option with a $10,000 down payment and is raising the balance through state and local grant programs and private contributions. The property contains abundant natural wetlands, limestone springs, wild brown trout, the LeTort Nature Trail (rail-trail), and significant historic resources. These resources will be permanently protected by CPC as a natural preserve.
CPC intends to secure and restore the Upper Letort Spring Run watershed while allowing access and education about the value of limestone streams, wetlands, and the regional history. By restoring the natural wetlands, stream channels, aquatic vegetation, historic structures, and removing invasive species, we aim to reverse the damage caused by years of commercial agricultural use and surrounding urban growth and development.
