Follow the Forest

Project description (English)

We call the effort to conserve this wildlife corridor Follow the Forest. It’s a big idea - that we can reconnect and secure the linkages between the woodlands, fields and wetlands of the Hudson Highlands, the Litchfield Hills, the Berkshires, the Taconics, the Greens and the Adirondacks. It brings together conservation partners in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Vermont at an unprecedented scale. Together, we pursue a shared vision that connects us to both the places we love and the wildlife that depend on the conserved forest landscape. Follow the Forest offers a unifying vision that ties together all of this independent conservation planning and charts a bold new direction for conservation action.
