Climate Change Challenge: direct effects on species
Grant Award: $250,000; Year Awarded: 2012
The White Mountain to Moosehead Lake region of New England is the pivotal east-west connector between 12 million acres in the Adirondacks and Vermont and 14 million acres in Maine. Widely recognized as an enduring landscape providing critical refugia for multiple species, this project will use the latest climate science data to inform conservation easement terms and ecological reserve design on more than 18,000 new acres of protected land.
