NE Secured Lands Report and Map 2007
The Secured Lands dataset is a cooperative project led by The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) Regional office, involving all the Conservancy’s eastern state offices and relying on data from 14 state agencies and many private organizations. We began building this dataset in 2005 and are now on our third revision (2007 version). In scope it includes all public and private lands that are permanently secured against conversion to development. The land may be owned in fee or held with an easement but the protection must be permanent. Our geographic area includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, District of Columbia and Ohio.
