Founded in 1992, the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy is a private, not-for-profit organization working to save special places in Albany, Schenectady and Montgomery counties. We have protected more than 1700 acres of land in the region, including over 900 acres open to the public for hiking, cross-country skiing, etc.
Special places of interest to the Conservancy include the distinct natural, scenic, agricultural and cultural landscapes in the Mohawk and Hudson river valleys.
We accomplish these goals by owning and managing land of significant ecological or scenic value or by holding conservation easements to assist landowners in preserving the existing natural features of their property. In addition, we work cooperatively with landowners, public agencies and other groups to implement land management practices that promote stewardship and enhance the region's rural and ecological integrity.
By protecting key parcels of open space, the Conservancy provides important benefits to those who live and recreate in the region, including: scenic views; plant and animal diversity; clean air and water; and the opportunity to explore and learn about the natural features that make our region special.
The Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy is a sponsor member of the Land Trust Alliance, an umbrella organization to America's more than 1,600 land trusts. The LTA promotes voluntary land conservation and strengthens the land trust movement by providing the leadership, information, skill and resources land trusts need to conserve land for the benefit of communities and natural systems. The Board has adopted the LTA's Standards and Practices to guide the operations of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy.
