Western Pennsylvania Conservancy

DAI is based out of Pittsburgh and is very proud to be part of the beautiful state of Pennsylvania. Ensuring that future generations can enjoy the wonders of nature, appreciate the natural beauty, and have opportunities for outdoor activities is a cause close to DAI’s heart. To that end, DAI is delighted to be a donor to the Fern Hollow Nature Center and is a proud Business Associate with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. 

Western Pennsylvania Conservancy protects and restores natural wild habitats, operates and initiates to bring gardens and greenery into cities and towns, and preserves Fallingwater- the Frank Lloyd Wright house and a World Heritage site. It works on multiple levels to educate the public on conservation topics via school grounds projects, offering educational solutions for things such as storm drainage and providing guidance for community vegetable gardens. It works to improve local water quality, study, and protect local aquatic species and habitats, and to protect watershed areas. It is active in land conservation, land stewardship, species monitoring and management, and protecting more than a quarter of a million acres of Pennsylvania’s natural beauty. Using natural science, it defends at-risk species, unique habitats, and battles invasive species. It operates a gardening and green program that plants trees and installs gardens and plant life in cities and towns, including downtown Pittsburgh.
