Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania (ASWP) is excited to announce the renaming of Succop Conservancy to Succop Nature Park. The new name better reflects Audubon’s connection to nature and the property’s longstanding openness to the public.
“This is the type of park where we like to work and play,” says ASWP Executive Director Jim Bonner. “And we know that others will share our excitement as they hike, picnic, and connect with nature at Succop Nature Park.” This is just the beginning—over the next few years, ASWP will be making improvements to the property to encourage additional use by the general public.
Open from dawn to dusk, with dog-friendly walking trails, two ponds, and natural spaces used for outdoor activities and education, Succop Nature Park has a longstanding history in the Butler community. While still owned by the Succop family, the public was invited to use the property for picnics—and even to collect fresh eggs from the onsite hens. Today, the property is managed by ASWP and its serene environment attracts visitors of all ages who seek to connect with birds and nature.
