Heritage Conservancy’s Lasting Landscapes® initiative unites open space protection and historic preservation comprehensively at the “landscape level.” Lasting Landscapes provides a single preservation strategy that combines complementary natural and historic resources, establishes large and contiguous preserved areas, achieves preservation objectives within an area’s cultural heritage and regional context, and involves local communities.
The majority of the properties that make up a specific Lasting Landscape are privately owned. Individually, these properties protect vital resources that benefit all of us; together, they protect the essence of a community. When you drive our area’s beautiful scenic routes, we hope you appreciate these special places and think about all of the compassionate people who helped make these permanent vistas possible.
The seven areas below are currently Heritage Conservancy Lasting Landscape® regions.
