See how we are protecting this "pathway for life."
Pennsylvania’s remarkable Kittatinny Ridge is part of an unbroken chain of forested mountains that forms a vital link in the 1,500-mile-long Appalachian Mountain Range stretching from Newfoundland to Alabama--a mosaic of rugged topography and varied elevation that makes it one of the most diverse habitats on Earth. In Pennsylvania, this forested corridor allows wildlife to move north or south and has been identified as the most resilient landscape in the state for adapting to a changing climate. That is why The Nature Conservancy is working with local, state and federal partners to conserve more than 15,000 acres over the next three years.

We are working with partners to keep this forested corridor intact.
The 185-mile long Kittatinny Ridge represents the most eastern edge of the Appalachian Mountains and runs from the Delaware River to the Mason-Dixon Line in Pennsylvania.
Nature’s future depends on “resilient landscapes,” places most likely to provide a range of conditions so plants and animals can move—to higher elevations and points north—and form new, healthy communities as their habitats change.
