Founded in 1953 by Allston Jenkins : "He forms a new organization called the Philadelphia Conservationists. In the years that follow, Allston becomes a recognized leader in conservation. He and the Conservationists help to preserve many more acres in the Philadelphia region, assist with the creation of four more National Wildlife Refuges, and even help to establish the first national park in Costa Rica.

"Eventually, the Philadelphia Conservationists becomes what is now Natural Lands and Allston leaves a legacy of conservation that touches millions of people in eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey." [1]
