About Us


To protect and conserve the extraordinary natural resources of the Fox Chapel Area.


The Fox Chapel Land Conservation Trust was founded in 1978 by Watson C. “Butch” Marshall and Joshua Whetzel to “insure that the natural and unaltered lands in the Squaw Run Watershed shall be the inheritance of all people.” The Fox Chapel Area Land Trust continues this legacy and is dedicated to preserving these lands in their natural, unaltered state for the benefit and enjoyment of residents, and to assure the environment remains protected for the plant and animal species that humans share this wonderful community with.

Across the country, land trusts protect over 4.7 million acres of land, including wetlands, farms, wildlife habitat, forests, gardens, parks, coastlines, watersheds, trails and river corridors.
