25 Years of Land Conservation


The Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy was founded twenty-five years ago on a cold winter evening by a small group of neighbors concerned about the loss of precious open space.  Today, the Conservancy is a strong regional land trust dedicated to preserving the fields and forests, wildlife habitat, and character of the Mohawk and Hudson River Valleys.

Join us for a year of celebration and conservation in 2017!

We have a schedule of talks, hikes, events, workshops, trail work days, and more. Click here for a list of upcoming events with the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy, and check back often for new events.

25 Years Toward Forever…

As we look forward to the next 25 years, that original vision—of a region with plenty of green, open spaces for everyone– has not changed.  The forethought of MHLC’s founding board enabled us to take action when it mattered most.

Looking to the future of conservation in the region, we need to strengthen the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy; to grow its ability to conserve more natural lands.  As the only conservation organization exclusively dedicated to protecting land in Albany, Schenectady, and Montgomery Counties, MHLC is uniquely poised to preserve these important places. We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate a quarter century of conservation. Your support allows us to grow and preserve more and more land.
