The Western Pennsylvania Restoration Plan is a comprehensive strategy to guide investment that will improve and protect critical aquatic and forest habitat in Pennsylvania’s western counties. The region is a biologically and geographically rich and diverse landscape defined by extensive stream and river networks, prolific forests, and consequently, extensive human disturbances on the landscape that threaten the sustainability and capacity to expand the habitat range of avian and aquatic species of interest. The plan identifies a clear set of measureable outcomes for species responses to habitat improvement and to which investments can be directed. By identifying a clear set of measurable outcomes, investments can be strategically directed, and will provide a framework to facilitate leveraging of public and private resources. The plan has been developed in consultation with key federal and state agencies and is informed by non-governmental organizations that are committed to the conservation and stewardship of Western Pennsylvania’s outstanding habitat, species, and watersheds.
