OSI seeks to accelerate the rate and effectiveness of conservation by providing grants and short-term, low-cost bridge loans for land transactions in selected landscapes in the eastern United States and Canada.
What We Do
We help land trusts protect preserves and parks, as well as community forests. We support land conservation projects that provide critical wildlife habitat, safeguard clean water, enhance recreational access, bolster local communities, and sustain people and wildlife despite an unpredictable climate.
