Located in our backyard, the Barrens in Long Pond are unique in the entire world. They hold the highest concentration of globally rare species in PA and fire is essential to the long-term maintenance of this community.  In 1992, The Nature Conservancy declared the Long Pond Barrens one of the “Last Great Places” and opened one of the very first community offices in Blakeslee. Come learn how the long-range plan for conservation has unfolded in this exceptional place. Carbon County Community Foundation Executive Director Amber Breiner will be on hand to introduce the purpose and goals of their new Lehigh River Watershed Fund.
