On Monday, April 6th, 2020 at 1:00pm, esteemed panelists will join the PA Highlands Coalition to host the webinar “Protection of the Kittatinny Ridge: A Global Important Bird Area.”

One of eight DCNR Conservation Landscapes, the Ridge is a Global Important Bird area, home to 160 miles of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, Pennsylvania’s most climate resilient landscape, and the headwaters for millions. Learn how the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Audubon Pennsylvania, and The Nature Conservancy are conserving this treasured 185-mile landscape in partnership with non-profits, municipalities, colleges and universities, and land trusts up and down the Ridge and beyond.
