Lomakatsi has secured agreements covering hundreds of thousands of acres over the next ten years. We will engage with our partners to implement ecosystem restoration projects across the region. Our goal is to utilize these agreements and partnerships to increase the pace and scale of our work to meet the need within the region. We will increase our capacity over the next ten years from $5 million and 5,000 acres per year to $10 million and 12,000 acres per year. These partnerships and initiatives will infuse nearly $70 million into local communities, supporting hundreds of jobs and creating resilient ecosystems.
Lomakatsi will also work to share the model that we have built together with other regions across the country.
