What do you love about living in Rensselaer County? The Rensselaer Land Trust wants to hear what places in Rensselaer County are important to you, and why. The Land Trust has received funding to develop a Conservation Plan for Rensselaer County that will identify the most important places to preserve for future generations. We are holding four Community Values Meetings around the County to gather local input from communities and residents on lands they value for recreation, scenic views, natural resources, wildlife, and quality of life. Landowners, business owners, hikers, cyclists, hunters, skiers, snowmobilers, realtors, and anyone interested in the future of Rensselaer County’s landscapes and resources are encouraged to attend. Come to one of the meetings to make sure your values help guide the Conservation Plan.
