Please join us for a Virtual Summit on April 19th to begin collecting your input on the Kittatinny Ridge Conservation Plan. We to see you there!

Register for the Virtual Summit here.

The first Conservation Plan for the Kittatinny Ridge Conservation Landscape (KRCL) is underway! With partnerships, research, public outreach, and protection efforts fortified by the Kittatinny Coalition since the late ’90s, the Kittatinny Ridge was designated a Conservation Landscape by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) in 2018. The Conservation Plan will frame a Ridge-wide strategy and action plan for protecting this critical Pennsylvania landscape over the next five years.

The KRCL Conservation Plan will be completed by December 2022 by Resilience Planning & Design (RPD). Staff will facilitate a process that includes stakeholder meetings across the Kittatinny Ridge, a comprehensive survey, document review, GIS analysis and mapping. The final plan will be engaging and easy to navigate with photos, infographics, and maps. The 2020 Kittatinny Coalition Strategic Plan will be incorporated into the Conservation Plan, including the delineation of sub-landscapes.

Stay tuned! We would like as much input as possible from our partners and stakeholders across the Ridge in the KRCL Conservation Plan. Community outreach and engagement events will be held throughout the spring 2022.
