Caring for the Land

Working with willing landowners to place a conservation easement on private land is the first step to lasting protection and partnership. Stewardship is the perpetual care of the preserves, trails, and conservation easements held by the Wallkill Valley Land Trust. 

We ensure the integrity of each easement by providing ongoing stewardship resources such as site visits, care of the rail trail and preserves, up-to-date resources on habitat improvement, invasive species and best management practices for landowners. 

The commitment to monitor, defend, and enforce the easements is what ensures perpetual protection.
