Adirondack Land Trust

The Land Trust (ALT) protects open space, including working landscapes like farms, managed forests, and scenic properties that raise quality of life for Adirondack residents. Often these organizations purchase land outright for eventual transfer to the public Forest Preserve, on which NY State pays taxes. They also design and hold conservation easements, which protect privately-owned land in perpetuity. Sometimes, as in the 104,000-acre Domtar/Sable Highlands and 161,000-acre Finch Pruyn projects, they combine techniques to accomplish conservation goals while maintaining economic opportunities for local communities.
