Mid-Atlantic Conservation Funds

OSI launched the New Jersey Land Protection Loan Fund  in 2003 operating in ecologically critical areas that are defined as the highest priorities by New Jersey's conservation community: the Highlands of the northwest; the Pinelands; the Barnegat Bay watershed; and the Delaware Bay Shore area.

In 2011, the Bayshore Highlands Fund was created to support projects that accelerate strategic land conservation in the New Jersey Bayshore and the Pennsylvania Highlands.

The Resilient Landscapes Initiative addresses climate change in two Mid-Atlantic regions that support wildlife adaptation to climate change: the Potomac Headwaters in Virginia and West Virginia and the Highlands and Kittatinny Ridge.

In 2014, capitalized with a $9 million grant from the William Penn Foundation, OSI's Delaware Watershed Land Protection Fund makes loans and grants to qualified organizations for land acquisition in five watershed regions.
