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.

Read our Executive Director’s statement on the crucial importance of scenic resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We serve the following 10 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania: Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Washington, and Westmoreland.

What does it mean when we say Scenic Pittsburgh is “Pro-Beauty?” See our Pro-Beauty Is… infographic.

We believe that beauty is good for business, and that everyone deserves to live, work and play in a beautiful place.
