  • I believe in what you are doing. It’s a really good cause. I think it is important to sustain the natural areas that are left for the future generations of people and wildlife. I believe in sustainability, the long road, and that’s what Rensselaer Land Trust’s work is all about.” Sean Rowe, volunteer and member.
  • We’re very happy to have donated this easement and be working in partnership with Rensselaer Land Trust. We love this land, and it’s an important part of our legacy to ensure that our bit of the Rensselaer Plateau remains a friendly habitat to the frogs, salamanders, fish, woodcocks, pheasants, bobwhites, occasional bobcats, and all of the other wildlife. The easement also protects the history and future of the land and the barn by allowing responsible traditional use of the fields, forest, and structures.” Bill and Teresa Holliday, Ridgeline Conservation Easement, Stephentown.
  • 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.
  • 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.
