To acquire this land, we need $55,000. We have $15,000 available, requiring us to raise $40,000. Will you help us? The parcel is adjacent to land already owned by the Friends that includes portions of the Long and Koch Trails – acquiring this new parcel would allow the expansion of recreational and environmental education activities at the Center.
This property is part of the open space on the Rensselaer Plateau, home of one of the largest forest blocks in New York State. These large forest tracts provide habitat for wildlife such as moose, bear, fisher, porcupine, and birds which require large areas of unbroken forest. Your donation will help us preserve this significant wildlife habitat for future generations.
Through the generosity of Friends like you, the Friends have already been able to protect and conserve almost 200 acres near Dyken Pond. We hope you will show your support for this important addition to the Dyken Pond Center’s natural treasures.
You can make a difference! Please donate online or send your contributions for the protection of this parcel to: The Friends of the Dyken Pond Center, 475 Dyken Pond Road, Cropseyville, NY 12052. Find out more by calling 518 658-2055.
