'Parcel by parcel, and partner by partner, OSI works to safeguard the natural places that sustain us all.'
The need to protect our nation’s precious natural resources has grown ever more pressing, and the Open Space Institute (OSI) is delivering real results – providing access to the outdoors for people of all backgrounds, protecting clean drinking water, stemming the effects of climate change, and providing critical wildlife habitat.
Parcel by parcel, and partner by partner, OSI works to safeguard the natural places that sustain us all. By the close of this year, OSI will add more than 25,000 acres to state and national parks and forests – conserving precious forests, wetlands, and recreational corridors throughout the eastern United States. In places far and wide, from the Adirondacks and the Hudson Highlands to Coastal Georgia and fast-developing South Carolina, OSI is protecting lands critical to life — ours and the planet’s.
