Each day, an estimated 6,000 acres of open space are converted to other uses.
U.S. Forest Service
Today, we are taking a stand. This fall, MHLC, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy, the City of Albany, and the Albany Water Board, has protected 6,400 forested acres of Water Board lands, protecting 852,000 trees. Each year these trees will generate an average of 221,500,000 pounds of oxygen—the amount consumed by 115,000 Capital Region residents annually.*
Saving trees. Saving landscapes. Saving water sources. Saving farmlands. Saving habitats.
The Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy is making an impact that will ripple through generations. We deserve a future with access to clean air and water, preserves for recreation, fresh food from local farms, and local environmental resiliency.
To continue this crucial work—and spread our impact across the region—we need your help. We must raise $200,000 by December 31st.
MHLC has received two generous year-end challenges this holiday season:
1- New to MHLC? The Conservancy has received a challenge from The Miller Family Charitable Trust. Each new MHLC donor who gives up to $1,000 in a first-time gift will be matched by this grant. If we raise $15,000 in new donations from supporters who have not previously given to MHLC, the trust will match each gift dollar-for-dollar. Read more about this generous challenge from The Miller Family Charitable Trust.
2- Renewing your gift to MHLC? Please consider giving a little extra this year. MHLC has received a year-end challenge from a generous family. From November 1st through December 31st, all supporters who give a gift that exceeds their usual annual support will have their year-end gift matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000.
PLUS, every donor who gives $100 or more by December 31st will be entered into a fabulous raffle for a pair of round-trip airline tickets!
Please donate today and tell your family and friends about this exciting opportunity. We are counting on you for your support!
