Parrish Woodland Easement
Jackson Township, Perry County
Josh and Amanda Parrish have donated an easement on their 106 acre woodlands located less than one mile from the Dodson property! The Parrish’s are the Conservancy’s youngest easement donors and are leaders in conservation for the region’s young professionals. Situated on Tuscarora Mountain, this property consists of intact forest habitat that provides connectivity to the adjacent 90,000 acre Tuscarora State Forest as well as to the Kittatinny Ridge Corridor. In addition to maintaining healthy forest habitat and sustainable forestry practices, the easement protects Bull Run, a wild native brook trout stream. The contribution to the health of the Chesapeake Bay, the Kittatinny Ridge ecosystem, and to the conservation area that is being established through conservation easements in western Perry County is outstanding!
