Parcel Level Studies

The PA Highlands Parcel Level Analysis for Landscape Land Protection and Long Distance Trails highlights studies conducted in the PA Highlands that focus parcel level analyses for land protection and development of trails. The projects listed identify core areas for conservation, assessments of prioritizing lands for conservation or trails and evaluation of areas at risk to development. 

If you know of an analysis project that we should include, please email us at amcpahighlands@outdoors.org.

The Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Project

The aim of the Circuit Trails Visual Assessment Project is to identify potential land conservation opportunities within the trail’s viewshed based on a conservation assessment that scores and ranks priority lands. The results of this analysis will be used to provide organizations and project partners with a conservation and visual assessment report to assist with local conservation efforts.
