Citizens for Responsible Development-LST is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to protecting rural parts of Lower Saucon Township from expansion of the Bethlehem Landfill.  Its efforts are focused on 275 acres of forest on the banks of the Lehigh River which has been targeted by the landfill.

The sponsoring venue, the Hellertown Historical Society (HHS), is dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of Hellertown, PA. HHS, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, preserves the Heller-Wagner Grist Mill, Pony Bridge, the Grist Miller’s House, Wash House, and related historical buildings and Hellertown’s heritage through collection, preservation, and exhibition of selected mill-related and Hellertown-related documents, artifacts, and photographs.
