BSC worked with Heritage Conservancy of Doyleston to present the first parcel of land to be preserved under the Northampton County Open Space Program. The land preserved includes potential bog turtle habitat adjacent to Sobers Run, the best quality stream in the watershed. BSC began working with Heritage in 2004 to protect critical open space, natural areas, and historic sites in the upper watershed, particularly the riparian corridors along Sobers Run. BSC continues to work with various land conservancies to preserve and protect environmentally sensitive lands.
