Green Space Conservation
Clean Ohio Fund >

The Clean Ohio Green Space Conservation Program helps to fund preservation of open spaces, sensitive ecological areas, and stream corridors. Special emphasis was given to projects that:
  • Protect habitat for rare, threatened or endangered species;
  • Preserve high quality wetlands and other scarce natural resources;
  • Preserve streamside forests, natural stream channels, functioning
    floodplains, and other natural features of Ohio's waterways;
  • Support comprehensive open space planning;
  • Secure easements to protect stream corridors, which may be planted with trees or vegetation to help reduce erosion and fertilizer/pesticide runoff;
  • Enhance eco-tourism and economic development related to outdoor
    recreation in economically challenged areas
  • Provide pedestrian or bicycle passageways between natural areas
    and preserves;
  • Reduce or eliminate nonnative, invasive plant and animal species;
  • Provide safe areas for fishing, hunting and trapping in a manner that
    provides a balanced eco-system.
