Penn State’s Guiding Principles document offers information on sustainable land management and conservation practices. These are described in the Campus Planning and Sustainable Campus sections of that document. This links directly to the Penn State LEED policy that details information on environmental conservation and site assessments including restoring natural habitats.
Environmental resources are mapped in the Campus Master Plan.
Penn State has partnered with the Clearwater Conservancy, a non-profit organization that aims to conserve and restore the natural resources in central Pennsylvania, to conserve a piece of property in Penn State’s boundary known as Musser Gap.
