  • Sometimes I just start a trail and see where it leads me.” David Gaskell, Kinderhook Creek Nature Preserve, Nassau
  • 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.
  • I’ve always derived a sense of spiritual replenishment from my time in natural surroundings, especially around water. I consider organizations like Rensselaer Land Trust to be an important counter-balance to the pressures to develop land, which in many cases is conducted with only profit in mind, and with no concern for the impact on the future.” Fred Alm, volunteer and member.
  • Several neighbors have already told me how happy they are that I put the land in conservation easement. I’m glad that many of my neighbors seem to share my appreciation for how beautiful the area is and want to maintain it that way rather than see it developed.” Alice LeBlanc, Randall Creek Conservation Easement, Stephentown.
