Dedicate a Bench at the Van Scott Nature Reserve

An Exciting Named Gift Opportunity

The three miles of scenic walking trails at the Van Scott Nature Reserve wind through forests, wetlands, and wildflower meadows. Numbered stops along the trails teach important ecological lessons through the Conservancy's Interpretive Trail Guide.

Wooden benches stationed at notable scenic and educational areas throughout the Reserve provide an excellent place to sit, relax, and take in the beautiful scenery.

With a donation to the Conservancy of $5,000, you have the opportunity to dedicate a bench in your name or in honor or memory of a loved one.

If you would like to dedicate a bench at the Van Scott Nature Reserve or discuss other named gift opportunities at this special property, please contact Donor Relations Coordinator Samantha Mango at or 570-226-3164 ext. 9 to discuss your gift.




This bench, located in the wildflower meadow along the Butterfly Trail at the Reserve, is dedicated in memory of Ed Wesely, one of the founding members of the Conservancy.
