The Ridge and Valley Conservancy's sustained efforts to preserve precious wilderness areas, endangered habitats and farmlands takes its place within a larger movement set in motion by the groundbreaking work of Rachel Carson, the mother of the environmental and conservancy movements. Her publication, Silent Spring, cannot be overstated in bringing forth the awareness and protective policies of the last half-century. RVC's efforts in conserving precious lands in this Ridge and Valley are deeply founded on her contribution.
