Mokoma Conservancy

The Mokoma Conservancy is a nonprofit that preserves key watersheds near Lake Mokoma and Laporte. The organization manages two properties, the Conklin Run Wilderness Area and the Elklick Run Wilderness Area.

The Conklin Run Wilderness Area spans 243 acres. Easy and moderate trails explore the woodlands and streams in the area. A special habitat is preserved for golden-winged warblers, a near-threatened species that call the area home. Conklin Run Wilderness Area is located off of Lake Road, about one mile from the intersection of Route 220 and Route 154.

The Elklick Run Wilderness Area encompasses 143 acres just south of Conklin Run. The property features three trails. The entrance is at the intersection of Conklin Ridge Road and Gate Road.

The properties are open to the public 365 days a year. A calendar of summer activities is available on the conservancy’s website.
