25th Anniversary Country Barbecue!

The Columbia County Land Conservancy (CLC) is a non-profit organization that’s become close to our hearts. It works in partnership with local landowners and communities in Columbia County, New York, to protect wildlife habitats, farmland, and rural open space, and to encourage balanced growth.

Because agriculture plays a central role in the economy in our area, CLC works to support and sustain a strong and vibrant rural community, ensuring that development respects historic traditions, natural resources, and that public access to open space is preserved.

If you plan to be in the area this Sunday, I encourage you to attend what is always a wonderful fundraising event, the Country Barbecue. Nice folks, great food, and lots and lots of fun things to do! And if not, consider donating to CLC, or some other land-trust organization in your area.
