Keeping our air and water clean, helping plants and animals thrive, safeguarding communities from flooding—all hinge on preserving the valley’s beautiful wild lands
Protecting habitats in the Hudson River’s largest freshwater tidal swamp and helping the region become more resilient to climate-change impacts—these are the direct bene ts of conserving 132 acres along Ramshorn Marsh in Greene County. The property is adjacent to our RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary, where paddlers launch into the marsh to marvel at bald eagles, beaver and other wildlife.
All of the prime natural areas on Bronck Island now have been safeguarded thanks to a conservation easement on 147 acres. This land victory completes the protection of more than 400 acres of riverfront, wetlands, grasslands and forest. We also acquired the rights to develop a public trail, so people will be able to hike, birdwatch and explore the island, supporting the local economy.
