Established in 1984, the Adirondack Land Trust (ALT) is dedicated to protecting open space, working landscapes such as farmlands and managed forests, as well as other lands contributing to quality of life for Adirondack residents.
The Nature Conservancy's Adirondack Chapter and ALT are separate organizations that operate under one roof. Each has its own volunteer Board of Trustees helping to guide conservation work in the Adirondack region. In 1988, ALT and the Conservancy solidified their partnership to become a combined local conservation force distinguished by its ability to accomplish a broad range of ecological goals while also preserving people's livelihoods.
