When we protect a farm, we preserve a way of life. For generations, people in the Catskills have appreciated the rural character of the region’s undeveloped landscape: beautiful farm and forestland patched together with cool mountain streams.
Through a unique agricultural conservation easement with the Watershed Agricultural Council, landowners can permanently protect their farmland while preserving their right to farm and forest the land. By donating to our Stewardship Endowment Fund, you are supporting this practice and ensuring that the land is protected in perpetuity.
Join us on Tuesday, November 28th as we protect farms, forest and clean water by donating online at: nygivesday.org/organizations/watershed-agricultural-council
Thank you for supporting the Watershed Agricultural Council’s mission of promoting the economic viability of agriculture and forestry, the protection of water quality, and the conservation of working landscapes for generations to come!
