Sam's Point: Working with Partners

A Shared Vision

More than 40,000 acres of the ridge are protected by the members of the Shawangunk Ridge Biodiversity Partnership. Comprised of non-profit and public organizations, the Partnership uses science and land management strategies to preserve sensitive wildlife habitat and other natural resources. Informed by field research findings, partners collaboratively manage the larger landscape, provide environmental education, and work with local communities to preserve open space on the slopes of the ridge.

The Shawangunk Ridge Biodiversity Partnership includes:
  • Cragsmoor Association
  • Friends of the Shawangunks
  • Mohonk Preserve
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • NY/NJ Trail Conference
  • NYS Department of Environmental Conservation
  • NYS Museum
  • NY Natural Heritage Program
  • NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation
  • Open Space Institute
  • Palisades Interstate Parks Commission
  • U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
