Welcome to Earth Conservancy!
What We Do
Earth Conservancy’s primary work is reclamation. We believe through reclamation, both environmental restoration and economic revitalization can occur. In the last 25 years, nearly 2,000 acres of mine-scarred lands have been reclaimed and now are available for – or are already in – constructive use. We also are proud of our efforts to mitigate the damage of acid mine drainage in local watersheds. All of our projects trace back to EC’s overarching plan, one that seeks a more livable community now, and clears the way for positive, progressive change for future generations.
