St. Lawrence Land Trust

Being out in the woods is more than just a pastime for me, it's how I find my balance. The woods keep me healthy and fill up my soul. We are so lucky to live in a place where people care enough to not only protect open spaces, but also to provide access to the public and to people like me.
