Northeast | NRDC

America’s Northeast is home to some of the nation’s oldest wilderness and most densely populated cities, with some communities on the front lines of the fracking boom while others lead the way in clean energy. The region’s role as a financial, academic, and political powerhouse elevates many of its challenges and solutions to the national level and natural resources in the northeast.

NRDC works throughout the Northeast—including New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania—to protect the region’s environment, advance our top priorities through local action, and use our advocacy successes as models for sustainability that can be replicated in other communities across the country.
