American Open Spaces at Risk Map
The Open Spaces at Risk Map highlights just a few of the pressures facing open space preservation from development pressure to oil and gas development to loss of agricultural lands. Inset maps show projected residential development in 2030, areas most vulnerable to climate change, severely altered river flows, and the spread of invasive species. Stories at the top of the map describe how organizations across the country are working creatively and cooperatively to save places in the face of these growing threats.
