From the high peaks of the Catskill Mountains, to the historic shores of the Hudson River, Greene County New York features a diverse and productive landscape.

To preserve and protect the rural character of Greene County, the Greene Land Trust works with a wide range of partners to facilitate a balance between sound development and effective conservation. The Greene Land Trust’s primary goal is to work with public and private landowners to protect natural and cultural resources for future generations.

"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect." - Aldo Leopold

    An afternoon of music at the Willows at Brandow Point.

     

    Wickers Creek Band at the Willows September 29, 2018

    The event kicked off at 2 PM with music by Wickers Creek Band.  They performed an eclectic mix of traditional American music, primarily in the Bluegrass tradition. 

    They were followed by Breakneck Ridge Revue , a folk "jam band" of Hudson Valley musicians building twangy but danceable sets around a mix of traditional and original songs ranging from blues to folk to rock -- from John Prine to the Beatles -- but always with a homegrown feel.

    The weather was wonderful and all who attended enjoyed the afternoon. Food and beverages were provided by Crossroads Brewery and Best of the Wurst.  


     Just like Subaru-- Dog Tested and Dog Approved.  Really good hot dogs from Best of the Wurst.
