Schumer in Chatham for land conservancy

Dec 28, 2014 12:03 am
Tobiah Black reports in The Columbia Paper that New York Senator Charles Schumer was in Chatham Dec. 20 at the Columbia Land Conservancy headquarters in Chatham. Schumer said that legislative action is necessary to aid the conservancy efforts because the “forces of preservation never have the money that the forces of anti-preservation have.... Preserving the beauty of the county… not only keeps our lives nice… it’s an economic shot in the arm." Other speakers at the event included CLC Executive Director Peter Paden and Karen Ross, a landowner from New Lebanon who has donated easements to her farm, Andy Bicking, director of public policy for Scenic Hudson, and Ethan Winter, New York conservation manager for the Land Trust Alliance.
