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 over 400 acres of properties owned by the New Baltimore Conservancy, Scenic Hudson Land Trust and the Town of New Baltimore, designing and managing property trails with ongoing maintenance as well as larger-scale projects including: the world’s first recycled plastic bridge (2000), a scenic observation deck overlooking a tidal pond; barn and outbuilding restorations and a boardwalk meandering through a marsh.
We sponsor informative trail and nature walks, Hudson River paddle events and annual social events such as: Taste of History; Wine and Cheese on the Hudson River; Barn Party at Scenic Hudson’s Long View Park and 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 monthly meetings, we offer speakers and programs covering topics ranging from identification of invasive plants, archaeological and geological surveys, historic restorations of homes and 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.

Programs begin at 7:30 pm. Meetings are held in the Community Room of the Cornell Hook and Ladder Fire House located at 77 Gill Road in New Baltimore (please note address).
