By the Numbers:
Strategic Conservation Planning has performed green infrastructure activities in close to 40 states.

Strategic Conservation Planning has completed greenspace plans for three of the largest metropolitan areas in the country.
Achieving environmental and economic goals often requires solving complex problems.  Our Strategic Conservation team thinks big and offers solutions that government leaders, conservationists, and others need to create systemic and lasting change - in major cities, watersheds, and even multi-state regions.  Strategic conservation makes economic sense – establishing an environmental legacy for future generations in the most efficient and cost effective manner.
