Saratoga PLAN is a nonprofit land trust that works to preserve the rural character, natural habitats and scenic beauty of Saratoga County so that these irreplaceable assets are accessible to all and survive for future generations. We help landowners conserve their farmland, woodlands and natural habitats. We connect people to nature through an extensive trail network and 10 public nature preserves, for hiking, biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and kayaking.

Saratoga PLAN helps communities create plans that balance growth with conservation to sustain the Saratoga Region as a great place to live, work, visit and farm.

Our Nature Preserves are open to the public from dawn to dusk.

THE LANDSCAPE OF SARATOGA COUNTY

MAPPPING PROJECT AND ANALYSES

Saratoga PLAN’s 2013 landscape study used updated data and modelling for aerial photos, land uses, groundwater recharge, wildlife habitat, natural community integrity, stream quality, agricultural suitability, planned trail networks, predicted development growth patterns, grey infrastructure, conserved lands, and other factors. The maps and analyses will help us better evaluate and rank places and properties for future conservation investments.

The landscape analysis project was funded by the NYS Conservation Partnership Program, the Community Foundation of the Greater Capital Region, NYS Council on the Arts, and the PCLB Foundation.

Kirstin Seleen, of Seleen Associates in Glens Falls, provided outstanding service and expertise as the project consultant.
