It is the mission of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy to enhance the quality of life in the Mohawk and Hudson River valleys by preserving natural, scenic, agricultural and historic landscapes, and conserving habitats, in partnership with landowners, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, and governments for the benefit of current and future generations.
Our work to conserve land in the Capital Region is ongoing. Currently, there are three major projects in progress: Bender Melon Farm, the Heldeberg Workshop property, and Lansing Farm. Your support is critical as we strive to fulfill our mission and protect these lands forever. Learn more about our current projects and how you can help support our work by visiting the links below. And please, help us spread the word–because together we can do BIG things!

Efforts are underway to conserve the largest undeveloped acreage below Thacher Park, the 257-acre Heldeberg Workshop Property. The Workshop lands have been home to the “Adventure in Learning” summer camp for more than 50 years. Learn more!
Lansing Farm is one of the last remaining farms in the town of Colonie. This vibrant working farm, surrounded by dense development, preserves a piece of the rich agricultural past of the region. However, with just 20 acres remaining of what was once a 1,000-acre farm, the threat of the farm disappearing is real. Learn more!
