Lasting Landscapes®

Heritage Conservancy’s Lasting Landscapes® initiative unites open space protection and historic preservation comprehensively at the “landscape level.” We identify and map significant landscapes containing both natural and historic resources, and then develop and implement protection techniques to sustain the resources’ integrity.

Lasting Landscapes® provides a single preservation strategy that combines complementary natural and historic resources, establishes large and contiguous preserved areas, achieves preservation objectives within an area’s cultural heritage and regional context, and involves local communities.

The seven areas below are currently Heritage Conservancy Lasting Landscape® regions.
