Tinicum Conservancy gathering sets record for attendance


The Tinicum Conservancy resumed its annual Community Celebration recently, and attendance hit an all-time record of 144 friends, neighbors and supporters.

Guests gathered at the 88-acre conserved property of Steve McDonnell and Jill Kearney, where they were treated to refreshments and good company along with an update on all the Conservancy’s recent successes and conservation projects.

Jim Engel, the Conservancy’s executive director, expressed his deep appreciation for the community’s generosity of time, expertise and financial support.

“The positive feedback we received from attendees was overwhelming,” he explained. “This is always a feel good event, but everybody was so happy to finally be able to gather again. It made this year truly special.”

“A special thank-you goes out to everyone who attended — and if you couldn’t be there, we hope you’ll join us next year,” the Conservancy said via email.
