Columbia Land Conservancy

Chatham, NY
Recommendations

"The Columbia Land Conservancy, which I support, has wonderful ‘conservation areas’ with hiking trails throughout the County. My favorite ‘High Falls’ happens to be only a couple miles from home. It is a short hike to an amazing waterfall, and of course there are countless other beautiful options."

Notes from the website:
The Columbia Land Conservancy works with the community to conserve the farmland, forests, wildlife habitat and rural character of Columbia County, strengthening connections between people and the land. Since our founding in 1986, the Columbia Land Conservancy has collaborated with partners to preserve the County’s vibrant rural character. We have conserved more than 30,000 acres of farmland, forests, and wildlife habitat to ensure clean air and water, healthy ecosystems, a strong agricultural sector, and a rich variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. CLC works with the community to cultivate connection to the land by providing outdoor and educational activities at our 10 Public Conservation Areas, to support agriculture by ensuring prime farmland continues to be available to the next generation of farmers, and to promote land protection and smart land use planning.
