Since its founding, MHLC has protected close to 5,000 acres of land in Albany, Schenectady and Montgomery counties, with almost 50% of its growth taking place in the past 3 years. This exponential expansion is fueled by generous funding by devoted supporters who have enabled the Conservancy to protect air and water quality, local food supplies, and critical habitats.  But there’s still so much more to be done!

In celebration of the Conservancy’s coming 25th Birthday, the Conservancy has received a wonderful and unexpected anonymous pledge for $25,000.  If we raise $25,000 in donations by December 31st, 2016, the donor will match it, dollar-for-dollar. This doubles the impact of your year-end gift!

It takes many hands to conserve the Capital Region’s natural lands and heritage—please lend a hand by contributing what you can, and by telling your friends to do the same.  Every dollar makes a difference—today and for future generations.

Once we develop our natural areas, we cannot get them back.  Please donate today!
