Thank you for raising funds to support our mission – to protect the Shawangunk Mountains Region and inspire people to care for, enjoy, and explore their natural world. 

Mohonk Preserve’s award-winning Land Protection, Land Stewardship, Environmental Education and Conservation Science programs all work to protect an iconic landscape named "one of Earth’s last great places,” and reach beyond the borders of our over 8,000 acres.

Mohonk Preserve is home to stunning mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds, and other unique environments. Your Rock The Ridge fundraising will help save the land for life by:

  • safeguarding clean water integral to the health of the Hudson River and New York’s water supply;
  • protecting critical habitat for wildlife like the Peregrine Falcon, which is listed as an endangered species in New York State; and
  • inspiring the next generation of conservationists by providing accessible environmental education programs for kids and adults.

We know fundraising can be hard. Our goal is to make your Rock The Ridge fundraising campaign easy, successful and fun!  We’ve created a fundraising toolkit so you’ll have everything you need to get started.
