  • Volunteer and member Steve Longtin recently commented about being on Rensselaer Land Trust’s Acquisitions Committee: “It’s a nice thing to do for the land trust, it does not require a lot of time, and I get out and see new parts of the county – it’s a win-win for everyone!”
  • This property runs along the Kinderhook creek and is gorgeous any time of the year. Those who visit will think they are out in the Rockies. My family is happy to put this beautiful location into the Rensselaer Land Trust so that others may enjoy its many advantages in perpetuity.” Ken York, Kinderhook Creek Nature Preserve, Nassau.
  • I have always loved the natural world and rarely a day goes by these days when I do not walk at least two miles in the woods. As a commercial appraiser I saw firsthand the pressures that development places upon the ecology and aesthetics of the landscapes that surround us. I realized that, without some type of intervention, this trend is a one way street. Strategic protection of land is one of the best legacies we can leave for future generations.” Paul Schroeder, volunteer and member.
  • It is our hope that this property will be enjoyed for many generations to come, with its natural beauty along the Wynantskill Creek, abundant wildlife, beautiful walking trails and historical significance.” Jim Staalesen, son and spokesperson for the Staalesen family. John B. Staalesen Vanderhyden Nature Preserve, Troy.
