Because the Hoosic Valley is still relatively undeveloped, we still have a chance to guide development wisely — and protect what should be protected before it is gone. It’s up to the residents of the watershed to be proactive in guarding the health and beauty of their region.
What you can do.
- Learn about the benefits of open space. It’s more than a pretty view!
- Participate in town or city planning.
- Support local land trusts.
- Consider conservation easements or the sale of development rights on your property.
