Protect Working Landscapes throughout
the New York City Watershed

With the help of 130 landowners, the Council protects over 24,000 acres of working farmland through conservation easements. Our goal is to add another 10,000 acres through conservation easement. This protection ensures these working landscapes in farm and forest will remain so for future generations.

To keep these natural resource-based industries in place, we need your help in building a robust endowment fund that will protect these vital lands. Together we protect water quality for over nine million New Yorkers, valuable farmland for the food supply and forested lands for recreational and personal use..
