Open Space Planning and Mapping

As the proverb says, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” Effective conservation efforts depend on reliable, in-depth information about a community’s resources and growth patterns.

Natural Lands Trust offers a wide variety of open space planning and mapping services that can help municipal leaders make informed decisions about their open space investments.
