Adirondack Land Trust Events

Please join us for a virtual event this winter!

10 a.m. Tuesday, March 2: Listening to Landowners — A Virtual Panel

The Adirondack Land Trust will host a virtual forum featuring Adirondack landowners discussing how and why they conserved their land. 

The Adirondack Park is renowned for the Forever Wild Forest Preserve, but private ownerships have helped hold the landscape together. Private forests and farms can provide interconnected landscapes that allow wildlife and communities to thrive. Often, landowner contributions to conservation are overlooked. 

Three Adirondack landowners who have taken steps to conserve their land with the Adirondack Land Trust will talk about the motivations, methods, challenges and benefits they encountered.

Panelists:

  • Emily Bateson, steward of 628 acres of private wild forest, including a lake in the town of Newcomb, under Adirondack Land Trust conservation easement 
  • Peter Palmiotto—Steward of working forest in the town of Newcomb, under Adirondack Land Trust conservation easement
  • Mary Brassel Zack and Richard Zack, who in executing a family estate added 250 acres on Moxham Mountain, between Minerva and North Creek, to the Forest Preserve
