The Fox Chapel Area Land Trust preserves natural and unaltered lands in and around the vicinity of the Fox Chapel Area School District in Allegheny County, PA.
The Fox Chapel Area Land Trust plays a central role in conserving our community's natural heritage. Since 1978, we have been actively acquiring and preserving properties in their natural condition. Today, the Land Trust continues its efforts as an important landholder and conservationist within the Greater Fox Chapel Area!
The Land Trust is responsible for more than 83 acres throughout O'Hara Township, Fox Chapel Borough, and Indiana Township. Our holdings consist of directly owned properties and conservation agreements (called easements) that serve as an undisturbed habitat for our region's animals, birds, and flora, and to protect the natural sights and sounds that we associate with our community.
