Losing Ground Fourth Edition - Land Use Statistics

The Losing Ground document reports a variety of statistics, many of them at a statewide level. Conservation agencies and organizations in Massachusetts direct their activities on many different levels. Local land trusts most frequently focus protection efforts in their municipality while the Commonwealth's many watershed associations have a broader perspective. This page allows access to key statistics at all of the following levels: town, watershed, ecoregion, county, and regional planning agency.

Choose the "Area Type" from the first dropdown and then select the specific area in which you are interested. Information on current land use, recent development, protection, and ecological impacts will then be displayed.
