Our organization protects and connects greenspace with an emphasis on the Pittsburgh International Airport Corridor. Hollow Oak Land Trust owns over 550 acres and protects 90 acres through conservation agreements with landowners. These conservation areas are open to the public year-round for hiking, biking and relaxing in the great outdoors.
Hollow Oak Land Trust properties are managed as conservation areas, where all plants and animals found there are protected unless specific written approval is received in advance from the organization. Management plans allow low-impact recreational uses such as hiking, biking and cross-country skiing, but not activities that could cause significant degradation, such as motorized vehicle use. One of our key goals is to provide public access to year-round recreational enjoyment and use by people of all ages, with minimum negative impact. Our trails and conservation areas are maintained by staff and volunteers.
