THE 2022 ENVIRONMENTAL BOND ACT to allocate $4.2 billion for environmental projects in New York State, including but not limited to  land conservation, passed easily statewide and received especially strong support from New York City voters. Land acquisition projects on Staten Island listed in the State’s Open Space Conservation Plan are eligible for funding through this act. However, there is a great deal of competition for these funds from other boroughs and from municipalities and counties in other parts of the State.

Protectors of Pine Oak Woods (through founding member Ellen O’Flaherty Pratt) has played a very active role in nominating parcels for inclusion in the State’s updates of the Open Space Conservation Plan for several decades now, working closely with the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the NY State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
