Schuylkill Center to permanently preserve 24-acre Boy Scout Tract in Roxborough

After months of fighting and community backlash over the potential sale and residential development of the Boy Scout Tract, a 24-acre plot of land owned by the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, the organization will permanently preserve the land thanks to a $3 million anonymous donation. The donation requires the Schuylkill Center to place the Boy Scout Tract under a conservation easement, which should take up to nine months before the organization is eligible to receive the funding.
