Mission Statement

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 2500 acres of land in the region, including over 950 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.

Issue Areas – Action Issues

We accomplish our mission 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 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.
