Making a Difference

Bob Keller

“I donate annually to keep the conservation programs going; and I donate periodically to the endowment to ensure that the land trust is here, for years to come.

I find it very gratifying to know I can help make a difference like this.”

On “the hill”

Lisa and Dan Sullivan

Where we live it is close to gone forever but up on “the hill” there are so many opportunities to preserve land and we want to be part of preserving this land.

A love for a lifetime

Loretta Lepkowski

Being raised on a small dairy farm in the Tug Hill region with a remarkably beautiful view of the Adirondacks heightened my own appreciation of this landscape and the work involved in raising children, animals, and produce.

I see and feel the current changes, economic pressures families face, and the uncertainty of where it is all going. Yet beneath it lies a trend to buy locally and adopt a healthier lifestyle. That’s what I love most about our agriculturally based Tug Hill region.

Our efforts will enable future generations to enjoy this property…

Cary and Deb Fassler

I grew up on nearly 300 acres on a busy state highway in rural Amboy, Oswego County. After attending a university and having a career, the love of the land called me back. My wife and two daughters support the goal of assuring that the forests and fields will remain productive yet preserve the wildlife habitat forever. Placing a conservation easement on our property with the land trust helped us realize our goal of permanently protecting our land. As this area grows, we get satisfaction knowing that our efforts will enable future generations of both people and wildlife to enjoy this property. Chalk it up for Mother Earth!

We’re building a better tomorrow

Bob Quinn

It is so important to continue to partner with our local communities to protect Tug Hill’s most important wild lands, forests and farms that are a crucial piece of our economy. With the support of these communities and landowners we’re building a better tomorrow.

Sustained for generations to come

Martha Deming

I want to know that not just a few years, but many generations down the road there will still be open land for farming, for animals, for birds, for the restoration and sustenance of the human spirit.

Dream come true

Spring Brook Virginia in the field

For me, this is more than my homestead, this is a wildlife preserve…one of the last places of its kind and that’s why it needs to be protected. Partnering with Tug Hill Tomorrow made this dream come true.
