Victory in the New York Highlands!

The Appalachian Mountain Club joined Highlands Coalition partners on December 6th, 2011 to celebrate the recent conservation of North Hollow, a 261-acre property in the NY Highlands. The acquisition was made possible with $653,500 in federal Highlands Conservation Act funds, provided through the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

The family of the late Gerald Blumberg, a long time resident of the Hudson River Valley, generously donated land value as a match for the public funds, working closely with the Trust for Public Land and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
