Last Saturday, I attended a dinner at the Sand Lake Center for the Arts celebrating the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance's Conservation Plan and contract to buy a 350-acre forest tract on the Plateau in the Town of Poestenkill. Congressman Chris Gibson, Rensselaer County Executive Kathy Jimino, and RPA President Jim Bonesteel were among the speakers.
There are a lot of non-profits that "meet, discuss and solicit donations." The Rensselaer Plateau Alliance, on the other hand, is a doer. They meet, they plan, they solicit and then... they really do something. And it's only the start. I encourage you to donate/join (click here).
Congratulations RPA on this land acquisition and thank you for your hard work in the service of our community!
