Help us acquire a 76-acre property along the Poesten Kill in Troy and Brunswick, known locally as the Taylor Farm.

We’re excited to be working with Rensselaer Plateau Alliance (RPA) and our community to make sure this beautiful place – which has been a destination for local residents for decades as well as home to beavers, pileated woodpeckers, owls and hawks, and other wildlife – is protected and accessible for the long term.

You can "tour" the land visually through Fred Alm's video here: video link, and read more about the project and property by clicking here.

Jointly, RPA and RLT are opening a public fundraising campaign for a September 1 closing. To date, we’ve raised $67,000 of the $99,000 needed for closing and still need to raise $32,000 from our members. Additional funds will be needed after closing for infrastructure, stewardship, and staffing.
