We asked for your help, and you responded!
The Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy is thrilled to announce that we met our fundraising goal for the Triumpho farmland. Because of your support, the Triumpho farmland is now protected with a conservation easement. The land’s many treasures: fertile soils, the banks and waters of Zimmerman Creek (a key water source for St. Johnsville), and hundreds of acres of rolling hills, forests, and fields are conserved forever, and the land remains open for future farming.
This work in the Mohawk Valley would not have been possible without the support of our community and funding from the New York State Conservation Partnership Program (NYSCPP) and New York’s Environmental Protection Fund. The NYSCPP is administered by the Land Trust Alliance, in coordination with the state Department of Environmental Conservation. We are grateful to our conservation partners, to Mr. Triumpho, and to our community for coming together to protect this incredible property!
To learn more about the 100+ year history of farming on this land, read our interview with Richard Triumpho in the December 2018 edition of Viewpoints, MHLC’s newsletter.
Thank you for your support!
