WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A new interstate collaboration of several conservation organizations from Fairfield, Putnam and Westchester counties has been formed to help protect imperiled streams, drinking water reservoirs, and plant and wildlife habitats in the region.

The Hudson to Housatonic Conservation Initiative, or H2H, will be led by Highstead Foundation (on behalf of Fairfield County Regional Conservation Partnership), Westchester Land Trust, Mianus River Gorge and Housatonic Valley Association.

Participating organizations and agencies will collaborate with landowners in 13 focus areas that straddle town or state lines and contain land with streams that drain into reservoirs or habitats that are likely to adapt to climate change in the future.

“H2H is harnessing an extraordinary collective of resources present in the northeast conservation community,” Virginia Gwynn, executive director of The Greenwich Land Trust, said in a statement. “By working together across town and state lines, we’ll be better able to inform landowners and communities about the larger landscape values of their properties, which contain critically important natural resources and sustain the people and wildlife of this region.”

Participating organizations and agencies will collaborate with landowners in 13 focus areas that straddle town or state lines and contain land with streams that drain into reservoirs or habitats that are likely to adapt to climate change in the future.

The project is being funded through a two-year U.S. Forest Service grant.
