“The Transborder Land Protection Fund offers grants and loans for projects that will enhance the protection of the Northern Appalachian/Acadian eco-region of the eastern United States and southern Canada. (View the eco-region map). The Fund is made possible thanks to the vision and generous support from the Partridge Foundation.

The Fund supports projects that integrate the protection of the eco-region along the international border and gives preference to areas identified by Two Countries, One Forest (Deux Pays, Une Forêt) as important for conservation action. The Fund supports land transactions that increase awareness of and support for conservation and accelerate collaborative action among public and nonprofit agencies.

A report detailing the Transborder Fund accomplishments to date, in French and English, is available as a pdf here.” (osiny.org)
