Centers and Conservancies

Franklin & Marshall College comprises a main campus in downtown Lancaster, Pa., as well as conservancies set aside for environmental preservation and education. While the Wohlsen Center for Sustainable Environment coordinates efforts for sustainability on- and off-campus, the Millport Conservancy is dedicated to research and education for F&M students, faculty, staff and community members. Conservation not only ensures opportunities for environmental stewardship for future generations but also serves as an example to the surrounding community, region and the world.
