Welcome to the Greene Land Trust
From the high peaks of the Catskill Mountains, to the historic shores of the Hudson River, Greene County New York features a diverse and productive landscape.
To preserve and protect the rural character of Greene County, the Greene Land Trust works with a wide range of partners to facilitate a balance between sound development and effective conservation. The Greene Land Trust’s primary goal is to work with public and private landowners to protect natural and cultural resources for future generations.
"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect." - Aldo Leopold
Progress on the Porch
Waiting for more funding to complete the porch. Hopefully the railing and steps will be installed in 2019.
