Delaware River Basin Protected Lands -Environmental Advisory Council Full Details
- Delaware River Basin Protected Lands -Environmental Advisory Council
- Delaware Basin NGOs and local governments, armed with greater knowledge and informed with improved land conservation, conservation finance, land use, and other practices, will increase the volume and quality of their work, achieving better water resource protection outcomes in the Basin. Improvements in water quality will also follow from improvements in public policy, which in turn will follow from higher engagement by NGO staff and volunteers in public policy advocacy that is stimulated by the grant-funded work. Purpose: The purpose of this map is to combine multi-state conserved land datasets into a singular form with common attribute fields that follow that of the Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) for the area that is the Delaware River Basin. Protected land categories follow that of the PA Conserved Lands map. This dataset can be used in the analysis of potential water quality improvements; alternative approaches to stewardship; riparian buffer development; and prioritization of land protection prospects within the Delaware River Watershed.
