CLC’s Strategies for Stewarding Land

We use a number of strategies to keep our Public Conservation Areas accessible and enjoyable. These include managing invasive species; planting native trees and shrubs along streambanks; encouraging pollinators like birds, bees, and butterflies; and mowing field grasses during times of the year that won’t harm ground-nesting songbirds. To find out more about how we manage our Public Conservation Areas, contact Nate Davis at nate.davis@clctrust.org or 518.392.5252, ext. 205. You can also visit our Public Conservation Areas pages to find a management plan for each site that discusses our stewardship activities in detail.
