Through our protection of threatened land, watersheds, habitat, and endangered forests, we safeguard what is unique and irreplaceable in The Hudson Valley.
Thousands of acres of land that are vulnerable to development. Our sustainable management plans are a nature-based solution to improve our region’s ecological health.
We prioritize lands for conservation based on their intact habitat and ability to serve as corridors for migrating wildlife, and contiguous forests to sustain the Hudson Valley’s natural legacy into the future.
Winnakee recognizes that forest lands are vital to NY’s ecological and economic well-being, and that saving them is an indispensable investment in our future.
These natural habitats – especially forests – which have biological, ecological, social and cultural importance and are vulnerable to fragmentation and escalating development. Preserving these open spaces and forests is essential to maintaining the special quality of life we enjoy here in the Hudson Valley.Learn More
Over three-fourths of our region’s most critical wildlife habitats are in vulnerable forests on private lands. Winnakee Land Trust has partnered with many families on the precipice of generational change to help them navigate protection of their cherished land. Winnakee’s new Forest Initiative is something not all landowners are aware of, and we encourage you to reach out for more details.Find Resources
