The Highlands Coalition
The Highlands Coalition, established in 1988, seeks to protect and enhance the sustainability of natural and human communities in the Highlands region of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. At a regional level, we work to secure federal and state funding for land protection in the Highlands and to foster more regional approaches to planning for and managing growth. At the local level, members of the Highlands Coalition contribute to efforts to fend off inappropriate development projects that threaten important Highlands resources and work with planning boards and community groups to understand the values of the Highlands and incorporate them into their decision making. The Coalition is comprised of more than 150 local, state, regional and national conservation organizations.
