  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
