People are flocking to the Hudson Highlands like never before. Demand for our parks and trails has never been greater.
With your support, we’re making sure we have enough for everyone.
In 2020, your support is helping us:
- Take care of land that’s already protected: We’ve partnered with other nonprofits and state agencies to manage record-breaking visitation to our area’s most popular parks and trails. We’re educating hikers to care for our sensitive natural resources.
- Create more parks and trails: To meet increasing demand, we are working through the New York Highlands Network to ramp up our conservation efforts across the entire Highlands region.
- Make our wild places more inclusive: Our parks and trails must be welcoming to all. To this end, we created a new history series focusing on those previously excluded. We are building this history into our conservation planning.
Thank you for helping us rise to these challenges.
As an accredited land conservation organization committed to conserving land in perpetuity, HHLT maintains unrestricted financial reserves of approximately $7mm in board-designated funds. The first priority for these funds are enforcement and stewardship of our conserved properties, with excess used for land acquisitions. These funds are separate from general operating funds and are about seven times our most recent annual expenses, totaling about $1mm.
