Economic Benefits Reports

Keystone Fund

A recent report by The Trust for Public Land finds that every $1 invested by the Keystone Fund in land and water conservation returns $7 in economic value of natural goods and services.

“Some of the key economic benefits of land conservation through programs like Keystone come in the form of natural goods and services,” said Jessica Sargent, director of conservation economics for The Trust for Public Land. “Protected parks and open space remove air pollutants, protect and enhance water quality and supplies, provide fish and game habitat, produce food, manage stormwater, and provide flood control and other necessary functions.”
