Year in Review 2023: Visionary Conservation Leadership

It gives me great pride to share with you the Open Space Institute’s 2023 Year-in-Review. This impressive compilation proves, once again, that OSI is in a class by itself when it comes to using smart, bold land conservation and visionary leadership to produce spectacular results.

Before year’s end, OSI is on track to protect and add more than 50,000 acres to federal, state, and local parks and forests. From conserving forests and wetlands to creating trails, parks, and greenways, OSI continues to embrace and tackle new challenges to connect communities, expand access to recreation, protect wildlife, safeguard sources of clean water, and increase wildlife and ecosystem resilience in a changing climate. As the impact of our work continues to grow, OSI is committed to leading the field and developing innovative solutions that benefit us all.

In 2023, with your support, OSI:

As 2023 draws to a close, our continued success depends on your support. Please consider a year-end gift to help OSI protect the land we love and need. Together we can achieve more great conservation and recreation projects in the year ahead.
