We are a member-based nonprofit dedicated to protecting and restoring the region’s waters, forests, natural areas and wildlife, planting community trees, gardens and greenspaces, and caring for Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater.

Support Pollinator Habitat to Help 
Plants and Wildlife Thrive

Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, moths, birds and bats, move pollen and cause plants to fruit or seed, and help most flower crops to bloom and crops reproduce.

Sadly, many pollinator species are in decline due to invasive plants and insects, habitat loss, disease, insecticides and other factors. However, Conservancy members, volunteers and partners are helping us create and protect habitats that provide food and shelter for these important animals and insects! And our conservation science staff documents and protects pollinators and recently participated in a 10-state Bees of the Barrens project.

You can help! Volunteer to care for pollinator-friendly plants in some community gardens, like this one at the Squirrel Hill tunnels in Pittsburgh, or help restore former agricultural fields to flowering meadows, pull invasive plants, and plant native, pollinator-friendly trees such as elderberry and redbud near streams. Plus, volunteer at Fallingwater to maintain a natural, pollinator-friendly landscape.

Join us June 27 for a free webinar, “Pollinator Habitat: Build It and They Will Come.” And read about those efforts and find tips for planting for pollinators in our recent issue of Perspectives.

This Atlantis Fritillary butterfly makes its home in forest openings, meadows, upland pastures, bogs and near streams. 

Butterflies help pollinate flowering plants, and caterpillars and butterflies are food for other insects, birds and spiders. Sadly, many species are in decline. 

Read about some wetland butterflies that WPC works to conserve.

Fallingwater Museum Store: Exclusive Textiles

Back by popular demand! In the summer of 2019, we launched our first limited-edition textile, named Ffenestr, created by London-based weaver Eleanor Pritchard. In the fall of 2020, we launched our second exclusive textile by Pritchard, named Carreg. Both were the result of Prichard’s visit to Fallingwater, where she drew inspiration from elements of the house. The textiles garnered much attention by visitors and collectors from around the world! 

We are pleased to announce that both Ffenestr and Carreg are available again for purchase only at the Fallingwater Museum Store.
