The Rensselaer Land Trust, with the help of volunteers from the Junior National Honor Society, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Appalachian Mountain Club, Town of Hoosic Falls, and individuals from the community, planted 300 trees at our Hoosic River public boat launch and fishing access site on Saturday, May 8, 2010. Special thanks are due to Brunswick Agway on RT 7 for donating tree fertilizer and to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for the trees. The site is located between Buskirk and Eagle Bridge on RT 67 in Northern Rensselaer County. The property is owned in fee by the Rensselaer Land Trust with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation holding the public access and fishing rights easement. This project is an example of what small local land trusts, such as the Rensselaer Land Trust, working in cooperation with the State and local communities can achieve for the benefit of the people of Rensselaer County and the State of New York.
