Scenic Pittsburgh is a nonprofit organization that protects, enhances, and promotes the scenic beauty – both natural and built – of southwestern Pennsylvania. Our work is focused on the nexus where economic development, community health, and environmental and historic preservation meet.

We protect scenic resources, but what are they? View our video to understand the kinds of scenic beauty that we defend and promote.
While we will work with any community in our 10-county region that requests our support, our outreach efforts are focused on communities that meet federal and state criteria for being low- to moderate-income.
We serve the following 10 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania: Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington, and Westmoreland.
We believe that beauty is good for business, and that everyone deserves to live, work and play in a beautiful place.
