"It is the mission of the Schoharie Land Trust to protect the beauty, land, heritage and rural character of Schoharie County and adjacent areas by acquiring real property, holding conservation easements, and providing technical assistance and planning information to landowners, public agencies, and others interested in safeguarding our natural assets."


"Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land."

-Aldo Leopold


The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants, and animals, or collectively: the land.
-Aldo Leopold
