  • 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.
  • Successful protection of farmland is critical to the future of Rensselaer County. We appreciate the opportunity to preserve this land whose scenic beauty and passive recreational use we have enjoyed for more than 45 years. Now is the time to protect these important resources. Farms are being converted to other uses to accommodate the county’s rise in population at the expense of food production, wildlife habitats and open space. We have chosen to make Rensselaer County our home for 53 years.” Gerald and Shirley Dunn, Shadbush Hill Conservation Easement, Schodack.
  • For the last 35 years we have enjoyed walking, skiing, snowshoeing and animal watching in our woods. We are very satisfied knowing that this land will always be protected so others, in the near and distant future, will have the same enjoyment." John and Linda Gowdy, Colehamer Road Conservation Easement, Poestenkill.
  • 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!”
