About WLC

The Woodstock Land Conservancy permanently protects open lands, natural resources, scenic areas, and historic sites in Woodstock and the surrounding eastern Catskills.

We believe that it is the places we love most that bring us together as a community, and that everyone benefits from conservation of the forests, fields, wetlands, and streams that keep the air and water clean, support farming, logging, and tourism, and are home to diverse wildlife.

WLC works with landowners who want to determine the future use of their land. By offering alternatives to selling land for development that both respect private property rights and can provide substantial tax benefits and financial advantages, we support the needs of landowners and local communities while protecting natural resources.  WLC often collaborates with other conservation groups, businesses, and local and state agencies to achieve our goals.
