More Scenic Views, Allegheny Woodrat Habitat Protected

Sixty-five acres of scenic views and important habitat along the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Mount Pleasant Township, Westmoreland County will remain intact, thanks to land now permanently protected via a conservation easement

The land hosts forested outcrops, which provide suitable habitat for the Allegheny woodrat, a Pennsylvania-threatened and globally vulnerable species due to habitat disturbance and loss, and the disruption of its food sources. Protection of this land limits development and timber harvesting, preserves wildlife habitat and safeguards scenic views.

The beautiful Ligonier Valley is one of several important landscapes where we prioritized protecting and restoring land and waterways. To date, we’ve permanently protected nearly 27,000 acres of land in the valley, of which more than 10,000 are through conservation easements.

Fallingwater Museum Store: The Red Collection

The color red varies in its meaning and symbolism from one culture to another. Red can symbolize love, heat, fire, danger, death, power, goodness, loyalty, courage, honor, joy, romance, purity, fertility, beauty, happiness, sacrifice and more. Regardless of what the color means to any one culture, people around the world seem to have a passion for red! 

In celebration of this complex color, we assembled a small collection of red items for you to peruse. We hope you find something meaningful to you!
