RENSSELAER LAND TRUST INC
April 28, 2012
I am 15+-year member and former board member and have seen (and hope helped) the Rensselaer Land Trust work to achieve its mission. The organiztion has achieved accreditation, increased the number of acres of land to be conserved/protected through easements, heightened local awareness of significant natural resources such as the Tomhannock Reservoir watershed, expanded public programs that encourage an appreciation of our natural environment, and earned increased support in the forms of grants, donations, and corporate gifts. The organization, while yet relying greatly on volunteer effort, has accquired several paid positions over the last 6-7 years. The Rensselaer Land Trust cooperates with and supports the work of many organiztions having similar objectives such as the Ag Stewardship Association and the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance. We are important to the long-range goal of keeping Rensselaer County a great place to live and work.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Its efforts to protect natural resources important to the place I call home and preserve scenic open space I so cherish.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
increase efforts to reach out to town governments to solicit financial support or services.
