Communities in NJ have been devastated by Superstorm Sandy and will continue to be tested by future storms and other extreme weather events due to climate change and sea level rise. One of the key ways that we can protect communities and help them become more resilient is through open space preservation. Open space is critical for not only extreme weather and protection of people and property but wildlife habitat, clean water, public access to recreation opportunities, flood plain management, and basic quality of life.
