When you gift your land to Winnakee for conservation, you can be certain that for years to come it will be protected and stewarded, making it one of the most generous legacies a landowner can give future generations in the Hudson Valley.  Your donation, whether outright or as a bequest in your will, is one of the most impactful things you can do to help ensure a thriving and sustainable future for wildlife and our region’s environmental health.

Many types of property can be considered for a Legacy Forest, whether they are existing woodlands or other properties that can be sustainably managed long-term. Gifts may be made in many forms. Prior to acceptance, each tract must be approved by the WLT Land Protection Team. A brief overview of the benefits of each can be found here: How to Save Your Land
