ABOUT PAX TIDEWATER LAND TRUST (PTLT) and READINESS AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION INTEGRATION (REPI)
- PTLT’s mission is to sustain the region’s biodiversity and water resources through a network of protected landscapes. The organization recognizes that forest and farmland and the region’s unique historic and scenic character are vital to a healthy economy and citizens’ sense of well-being. PTLT acquires land and conservation easements by purchase or donation. The Trust has conserved over 5,000 acres of land in perpetuity, keeping it as farm and forest to meet today’s needs and those of future generations.
- The DoD’s Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) program is a key tool in minimizing encroachment that could impede or restrict military testing, training and operations. REPI allows the military services to enter into unique cost-sharing partnerships with state and local governments and private conservation organizations to preserve compatible land uses around military installations and to conserve natural landscapes in support of military readiness.
