CLC’s Strategies for Stewarding Land

We use a number of strategies to make sure our Public Conservation Areas are fun to visit and provide habitat for plants and animals. 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 or 518.392.5252, ext. 205. You can also visit our Public Conservation Area pages to find a management plan for each site that discusses our activities in detail.
