New Film Highlights Land Conservation, Recreation In Allegheny County

A newly released short film called Love Your Land highlighting the work of Allegheny Land Trust in Allegheny County serves as a cinematically striking introduction to several of the non-profit organization’s local conservation areas that are open for public exploration.
The film, a joint production of ALT and Wild Excellence Films, is intended to inform Pittsburgh area residents about the many benefits of land conservation while encouraging them to experience the natural wonders that we are fortunate to have so close to home.
“We have an ALT conservation area within 12 miles of every Allegheny County resident,” President & CEO Chris Beichner said. “Once people experience nature first-hand, they begin to develop an appreciation for why it is important to protect it. So, we want people to be aware of the natural opportunities that ALT is working to provide close to home, and we want to invite them to join us in protecting opens spaces in our rapidly urbanizing county.”  
The film encourages visitors to “Love Your Land” and explores ALT properties Dead Man’s Hollow Conservation Area (Liberty Borough), Wingfield Pines Conservation Area (Upper St. Clair), Sycamore Island Conservation Area (Blawnox) and Emerald View Park (Mt. Washington) Conservation Easement.
