From May 26 to 28, 2010, Eden Hill Conservancy board members, volunteers, and local educators joined forces to host an outdoor educational program for over 140 first grade students from Tyrone Area Elementary School.  The program was held in the 150 year-old bank barn and on the trails of and forests of Irish Pines Tree Farm, a 113-acre tree farm located in Spruce Creek, PA owned by the Riley family.  Multiple first grade classes visited Irish Pines Tree Farm each day to participate in the session.

Gensimore Family Donates Conservation Easement to Eden Hill Conservancy, November, 2008

On November 7, 2008, Harold (Dink) and Rachel Gensimore donated a conservation easement to the Eden Hill Conservancy on an approximately 104-acre plot of agricultural and forest land in the Eden Hill area.  This property is adjacent to another property protected by the Conservancy, Irish Pines Tree Farm.  The property is, and will continue to be, highly productive agricultural land.  A portion of the property also slopes down from fields on high ground to a wooded buffer with frontage on the Little Juniata River; protecting this land contributes to erosion control, reducing threats to water quality and the healthy trout population it supports.  Eden Hill Conservancy was delighted to accept responsibility for stewardship of this conservation easement and is grateful to the Gensimores for their vision and commitment to preserving the unique character of the Eden Hill area.
