This live streaming bird camera is located on a 113 acre nature preserve situated in the heart of Lancaster County, PA. Nestled beside a giant sycamore tree which sits along a restored trout stream, the camera captures birds (and flying squirrels) enjoying both the feeders, forest and meadow habitat that is protected forever thanks to the work of the Lancaster Conservancy.
Climbers Run Nature Center is one of 47 nature preserves owned by the Conservancy, and has a two story barn with classrooms that are used for citizen science, volunteer training, and outdoor and environmental education.
The Lancaster County Conservancy has been working for over 50 years to provide wild and forested lands and clean waterways for our community. The Conservancy has protected over 7,000 acres of land in 47 nature preserves with over 40 miles of hiking trails. These nature preserves are open to the public free of charge, 365 days a year, and provide opportunities for education and passive recreation like hiking, fishing, hunting, and swimming. They have protected some of the most beautiful and beloved natural places in the area — places like Climbers Run, Welsh Mountain, Tucquan Glen/Pyfer and Shenks Ferry Wildflower preserves.
Their work cultivates a connection with nature and educates everyone of the importance of clean water, native species, biodiversity and proper land use, and by partnering with other non-profit organizations and government entities, they work to protect the health of our land, water.
