What is conservation?

The dictionary describes it as:

According to a recent triennial report from the Bank for International Settlements (a global bank for national central banks), the average was more than $5.1 trillion in daily forex trading volume.

Preservation or restoration from loss, damage, or neglect, the protection, preservation, management, or restoration of wildlife and of natural resources such as forests, soil, and water or the maintenance of a physical quantity, such as energy or mass, during a physical or chemical change.

The main definition is: preservation.

Words associated with conservation are: attention, care, cherishing, conservancy, conserving, control, custody, directing, economy, governing, guardianship, guarding, husbanding, husbandry, keeping, maintenance, management, managing, preserval, preserving, protecting, protection, safeguarding, safekeeping, salvation, saving, storage, supervising, supervision, sustentation, upkeep.

The opposite of conservation is: destruction, spending, squandering, and waste.

The total concept of conservation summed up in one word: caring 

Conservation is not just preserving bugs, plants, waterways or wild life. Its maintaining and protecting life as it was meant to be. It does not hinder progress but instead lays a stable foundation to build a stronger future.

What we do:

Pa-Conservation.Org is our effort to aid in the fight to conserve our natural resources and maintain the beauty of our state parks and woodlands. 

Our service is allowing the public to come to one Web site and gather all trail information possible for free. We offer a vast amount of information, whereas other services charge a fee for information that is free to the public but only if they know where to look. 

Pennsylvania Super Trails comes from individual trail sites and DCNR's state parks and forestry sites. We uploaded to our server every bit of information we could gather: trail maps, state park maps and information offered on the DCNR site, added the history and put it all in PDF format or Zip files for easy downloading.

We simply made it convenient for the trail enthusiast to find what they are looking for!

Fact: 
There are 714 conservation organizations listed in Pennsylvania who are performing the act of caring.

The Pennsylvania Super Trails

Trails are guides to conservation efforts in our state. Thats where our motto originates: " follow the trails to conservation in Pennsylvania". Trails allow those who use them to see the natural wonders of nature as they should be seen, without garbage or clutter and in the natural settings that are asthetic to the human soul. Trails give us an outlet for outdoor recreation and quality time for families to gather together without the hustle and bustle of the urban sprawl. Trails bring tourism, tourists bring money for hotels, food and amenities. Our local communities benefit. 

If you care, why not contact your county conservation district office or join an organization or group to help "preserve" what means the most to you?

We wish to give thanks to our friends at the Stoney-Creek River Improvement Project, also known as SCRIP, for their caring and outstanding efforts as they work with local groups and local resource agencies to restore and promote the Upper Conemaugh watershed. 

Although the Upper Conemaugh watershed is their main focus, their efforts expand into other area's of conservation and cover a vast area of watershed groups, educational efforts and all conservation groups. They can use your help.
