Nature Conservancy news for NY state

The New York chapter of the Nature Conservancy has its spring/summer newsletter out, focusing on government relations work, and it’s chock-full of great reading that I’d like to pimp:

  1. Piecing together the Pipes Cove Puzzle
    If you think protecting land and water is all about acquiring property, think again. Making the deal happen takes a lot of patience, partnerships, and persistence.
  2. Saving the Holy Grail of the Gunks
    Nothing focuses the mind like the prospect of a high-end housing and a golf development in the middle of a pristine forest. Seven towns on the Shawangunk Ridge live to tell the story.
  3. Plan A: New York State’s Open Space Conservation Plan
    The Plan serves as a “conservation wish list” consisting of natural resources, open spaces, and historical landmarks that the state and its partners would like to see protected.
  4. All Hands on Deck to Battle Aliens
    Invasive species are spreading – from New York City to the Adirondacks, these invaders are costing New Yorkers hundreds of millions of dollars and harming some of the state’s most printine natural areas.
  5. News From Around the State
