The New Baltimore Conservancy is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to conserve and enhance the natural, cultural and historic resources in and around New Baltimore NY. We manage ~260 acres of properties owned by the Open Space and Scenic Hudson land trusts and the Town of New Baltimore, designing and managing property trails with ongoing maintenance as well as larger-scale projects; including an innovative plastic-wood bridge, a scenic observation deck overlooking a tidal pond and a boardwalk meandering through a cattail marsh.
We sponsor informative trail and nature walks, Hudson River paddle events and social events such as music concerts at-home, wine and cheese on the river to celebrate our annual scholarship winner[s], tours of historic homes where friends, neighbors and guests gather. We support numerous local artists, community project grants for Eagle Scouts and historic commemorations. At our approximately monthly meetings, we offer speakers and programs covering topics ranging from identification of invasive plants, archeological and geological surveys, butterfly gardens, historic barns, River Keeper and eel migrations.
Join us at any of the events and programs which you find posted here and explore the splendid trails and properties we maintain.
The New Baltimore Conservancy meets monthly during the year on the second Wednesday of the month, with the exception of July and August. Board meetings begin at 6:30 pm and run one hour. Programs begin at 7:30 pm. Meetings are held in the Community Room of the Cornell Hook and Ladder Fire House located on Gill Road in New Baltimore. Our meetings and programs are open to the public.
