Mission or Purpose
The Linn Conservancy was founded in 1988 to honor the memory of Merrill W. Linn, a local attorney and outdoors man who spent much of his life exploring the woods, streams, fields, and byways surrounding his native Lewisburg, and sharing that experience and knowledge with others. In keeping with the tradition started by Merrill Linn, the Linn Conservancy seeks to protect and preserve significant ecological sites in the Union County and Upper Northumberland County region of Central Pennsylvania.
