Land Protection

Protecting Our Heritage

At Mohonk Preserve, we're committed to keeping the promise of permanent land protection. With help from our members and supporters, we do this through adhering to strict quality standards for nonprofit management and land conservation, and with professional staff and volunteers who are dedicated to upholding and advancing the Preserve’s land ethic in perpetuity.

Our land protection work is multi-faceted and involves keeping relationships with landowners and local communities strong, monitoring land protection agreements, and conducting scientific research and applied management techniques to ensure the sustained quality of natural habitats.

Today, we continue to protect the land needed for quality natural communities and habitats, and public recreational and restorative space. Working together with you, we’re leaving a conservation legacy that will remain for generations to come.
