Nature, essential to our quality of life.

Berks Nature is a 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization that has been serving the Berks County community since 1974. For 41 years we were known as The Berks County Conservancy. While our name has changed, the quality and nature of our conservation projects remain the same. Land, water, trails, community gardens, education programs, State of the Environment, Eco-Camp, and our valued partnerships will continue. You will see this work reflected in the following sub-brands of Berks Nature as we move forward!

We Need Your Help!

natureplace_webTo help address the environmental education needs in the community, Berks Nature plans to construct an aesthetically respectful, environmentally responsible, high-performance, green, sustainable education center in Angelica Park, City of Reading: The Nature Place. Our Spread the Seeds of Conservation Capital Campaign will enable the construction of The Nature Place. Thank you to all of our friends and members that have supported the Campaign to date.

We’ve been presented with a CHALLENGE!  The Avenir Foundation, based out of Colorado, has generously provided us with a $1.3 million challenge.  For every dollar raised, they will match it with a dollar.  So, your gift of any size will instantly be doubled!  We have $718,095 left to raise to meet our goal by the end of the year.  Please, help us meet our challenge and make your tax deductible gift today.  Gifts of $1500 or more will be listed on a plaque in the new education center, and there are still naming opportunities available!
