Greenspace Gems are selected by a team of conservation experts to reflect unique natural sites in our region. The team strives to highlight places that represent the geographic spread of Green Umbrella's 10-county region while showcasing a diversity of interesting features: from geology to biodiversity to plant communities to history. Each site tells a story of people taking action to protect a natural resource.
To recommend a site as a Greenspace Gem, email a description of what makes the site unique, who manages it and how it was protected. Gems will be considered for addition several times a year on a rolling basis.
