As the climate crisis looms, cities like Camden are on the frontlines of warming temperatures and rising sea levels. That’s why The Trust for Public Lands (TPL) is taking steps to prepare.

The national nonprofit recently released its Green + Healthy Camden decision-making tool, a publicly available mapping portal with over 100 layers of data. Essentially, the tool helps urban planners decide where to implement parks and green infrastructure, in order to maximize impact and achieve equity.
