  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!”
  • Why do I volunteer for Rensselaer Land Trust? I love Rensselaer County and consider it – all of its green spaces, lakes, woods, and hills – one of the region’s greatest gems. When we moved here 25 years ago from Albany County we thought Rensselaer County was the best-kept secret in the Capital District. Since then, we’ve watched the population grow by leaps and bounds, and the number of subdivisions and commercial areas soar. I want to use my skills to help protect as many of the rural and wilderness areas of the county as possible – for me, for my children, and for the unborn generations to come. This place is too gorgeous to lose.” Beth Schroeder, volunteer and member.
