Land conservation is critical in the Hudson Highlands! We welcome your support in tackling the most pressing threats to our region.
We know many of you are concerned about:
• Large development projects that threaten the places we love;
• Impacts of increased visitation to popular trails;
• Threats to our water supplies; and
• Maintaining spaces for wildlife to thrive.
HHLT is working on all these issues. In 2018, we added hundreds of acres to parks in our area, including to our own Granite Mountain Preserve. In Philipstown, we ramped up efforts to mitigate impacts of increased visitation to our most popular trails. And we documented key natural resources and special places in Cornwall and Putnam Valley.
With your help, we’ll expand our impact in 2019 toward these goals:
• Build out corridors of conserved lands for wildlife movement;
• Educate visitors from NYC about protecting natural resources;
• Ensure conservation outcomes for large development projects impacting the Hudson River and critical open spaces;
• Build watershed coalitions to protect our streams and aquifers.
Your support makes all of this possible! Please contribute to HHLT today to keep these efforts going strong.
Michelle D. Smith, Executive Director
