Rich Begenwald of Fox Chapel and his dog, Augie, are two visitors who like to go for walks around Glade Run Lake in Middlesex Township.

A 120-acre plot of land in Middlesex Township will be preserved for conservation use as a result of the collaboration between Glade Run Lake Conservancy and the Allegheny Land Trust.

Glade Run Lake Conservancy worked with the trust and longtime Middlesex Township landowner Joan Goswell to set up a conservation easement on a tract of land at the headwaters of Glade Run Lake.

“This is the first time that the Glade Run Lake Conservancy has done any sort of conservation easement,” said conservancy board of directors member Amy Jewitt. “It's really exciting for us to have this opportunity.”

In a statement, Chris Beichner, president and CEO of the trust, said that he was “extremely excited” to be working with the conservancy and the local community to preserve land around the lake.
