Conservation must benefit all people. Just as the array of benefits derived from smart, effective land protection are universal, so too should they be universally available. Access to clean air and water, the opportunity to get outside and experience nature, enjoy a sense of community, and seek solutions to address the deadly impacts of a changing climate, are critical to the health and happiness of all people.
As the world and social dynamics around us change, the Open Space Institute (OSI) is committed to being part of that change — committed to setting a new path through land conservation that will bring about lasting benefits to a full range of people and communities. By all accounts, we are at a critical juncture — and headed in the right direction.
