Thirty years ago a group of forward-thinking people came together to conserve the special places in Rensselaer County. Since then, thousands of people have contributed in so many ways to ensuring our lands and waters are protected for us, our children, and our grandchildren. As we celebrate 30 years of land conservation we’d like you to consider a special gift befitting the occasion – $30 per month for 30 months. Your tax-deductible commitment to the future will be used to protect land for people and the animals and plants we share it with and help make sure the water is clean. Thank you for caring for these thirty years and for supporting us as we begin our next 30 years together.
