This 19th-century grain mill remains the centerpiece of what is now an 85-acre refuge for native wildlife and plant species. 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.

The Millport Conservancy oversees a variety of activities to:

  • Maintain the existing buildings as well as the land and waters that serve as a sanctuary for its native flora and fauna
  • Host environmental and other related research, and provide programming for educational and nonprofit organizations to promote environmental awareness
  • Secure grants and contributions to support the Conservancy's programs
  • Acquire and preserve neighboring properties
  • Implement programs for soil erosion control, wetlands restoration and stream management
  • Encourage the propagation of wildlife and waterfowl in the area by planting, installing, studying and maintaining appropriate nesting areas
  • Support catch-and-release fly-fishing on the beautifully restored Lititz Run, one of the area's finest trout streams
