We are participating in the Extraordinary Give on Friday, Nov. 21. You can support the Millport Conservancy by going to ExtraGive.org all day. All Millport contributions will support painting, restoration and enhancement work on the historic Millport Roller Mill and the barn in order to make them even more valuable resources for our community.
Millport Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that was created in 1988 by Robert and Carolyn Wohlsen, who purchased the Millport Roller Mills, along with auxiliary structures and surrounding farmland, in 1969. This 19th-century grain mill remains the centerpiece of what is now an 85-acre refuge for native wildlife and plant species.
Visitors to Millport can explore the Conservancy’s extensive nature trails that wind past the original millrace and through its woods and meadows. Visitors will also experience firsthand the award-winning restoration of the Lititz Run, a model watershed effort.
In 2008, Franklin & Marshall College became a partner with the Conservancy.
Through this partnership, the College is able to expand its educational and research projects. The Wohlsen Center for the Sustainable Environment is a collaborator with Millport in these projects.
