Preserve Scenic Trail Experiences in the Philadelphia Region

Protect the View is a science-based campaign and call to action resulting from rigorous conservation and land development analyses. The in-depth research produced 10 views from 6 Circuit Trails that are vulnerable to development pressure. Protect the View visually showcases and highlights the many benefits these scenic trail views have to offer. The campaign catalyzes communication about the importance of open space funding and the need to preserve the scenic value of these places.
