Celebrating 30 Years of Land Protection in Rensselaer County

RSVP and Purchase Tickets HERE

After 30 years there’s many people to thank for land conservation in Rensselaer County. We’ll do so at our Annual Meeting and 30th Anniversary Celebration this fall!

We’ll take time to honor our donors, volunteers, and current and former board members and staff. We will hear from outgoing County Executive Kathy Jimino and Troy Mayor Patrick Madden. We’ll pay tribute to our founders and our past RLT presidents, board members, and staff including Christine Young, our former executive director, who guided RLT so ably for nine years. And we will welcome our new Executive Director, John Winter.
