Building Capacity for Adaptation on Pennsylvania Protected Lands
In 2022, EcoAdapt partnered with Natural Lands, a Pennsylvania conservation organization focused on protecting open space. With support from the Open Space Institute, this project will strengthen existing efforts to incorporate climate change adaptation into land management planning and preserve stewardship, with a focus on ChesLen and Bear Creek Preserves.
Project Activities
Project activities will include assessing the vulnerability of 5 priority ecosystems within each of the two preserves, followed by an adaptation workshop designed to identify priority adaptation strategies and create concrete, actionable plans for implementing those strategies through on-the-ground management and restoration. The assessment process and adaptation workshop will also increase the capacity of Natural Lands staff for climate-informed planning and management across all Natural Lands properties.
