2020 Field Trips and Workdays

Our open space is your personal space

The Adirondack Land Trust invites you get outside this spring and summer. When possible, we will hike, do trailwork, plant pollinator habitat and enjoy wide open spaces. Masks are required.

We ask your understanding that these are tentative plans, contingent on weather, and changes in health and safety guidance. This site will be updated as the season progresses.

In the meantime, to sign up or learn more, please contact Kimberly Corwin Gray at Kimberly.Gray@adirondacklandtrust.org or (518) 461-0947.
