The Rolling Ridge Conservancy is a trust created to preserve and enhance the beauty of a substantial piece of wilderness, forest, and open space, as well as to help an interrelated community of people use this land in creative, inspirational, reflective and socially concerned ways. Most of its 1500 acres is protected by a conservation easement held by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
The Conservancy leases land to lessee groups, providing the space for a variety of programs that offer wilderness experiences for youths and adults. These groups have their own boards and members who create opportunities for various constituencies to enjoy the forests and trails and streams. In addition, two hunt clubs with long-standing relationships with the land have permission to hunt on the property.
The Rolling Ridge Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) organization overseen by a Board of Trustees that meets quarterly. Linda DeGraf is the current Chair of the Board of Trustees.
