Acquired 857-acre Foothills property from Open Space Institute Land Trust

With our committed Board of Directors and support from land conservation partners and generous donors, Mohonk Preserve bought the entire Mohonk Preserve Foothills tract, an 857-acre property strategically located between the Village of New Paltz and the protected areas of the Shawangunk Mountains. The Foothills landscape was identified by the community as the “number one cherished landscape” according to the Town of New Paltz Open Space Plan and includes the local historic landmark Testimonial Gateway gatehouse structure (c.1908); the Humpo Marsh, a critical wildlife and migratory bird area; and the historic Brook, Pine, and Kleinekill Farms, which continue the property’s heritage agricultural operations.
