$5.5 Million in Funding Available for Conservation of Resilient Landscapes

NEW YORK, NY — June 5, 2013 —Four landscapes that analysis by the Open Space Institute shows are strongly positioned to facilitate wildlife adaptation to climate change are now eligible for capital grants for land protection and planning assistance to non-profit and public agencies as part of OSI’s $6 million Resilient Landscapes Initiative. This initiative was made possible with a lead grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

The four landscapes are: the southern New Hampshire and Maine forested region, the Middle Connecticut River region in Massachusetts and Vermont, the Potomac Headwaters of Virginia and West Virginia, and the Highlands and Kittatinny Ridge of New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
