Mission Statement Overview Board Members Projects Recognition

Mission Statement:

  The mission of the Cambria and Somerset Counties Conservancy (CSCC) is to protect our environment and apply sound conservation principles to the development of recreational opportunities for the residents and visitors in the Cambria/Somerset Region.



The CSCC was formed by the Cambria Somerset Authority (CSA) for the purpose of providing environmental stewardship to the natural resources owned by the CSA while simultaneously providing new recreational opportunities for the citizens of Cambria and Somerset Counties and the surrounding regions. CSA owns three reservoirs in the region and provides industrial water to customers while at the same time maintaining a suitable environment for recreation at the reservoirs.  CSCC received its 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization status in September, 2005.

CSCC is comprised of 11 board members from both Cambria and Somerset Counties.  CSCC maintains a close relationship with CSA;  The two organizations work together to conserve our natural resources while providing new and diverse recreational opportunities for our region.
