ALT Glenview Preserve Seeking Community Input

ALT Glenview Preserve Seeking Community Input

The Adirondack Land Trust is seeking community feedback on its draft concept designs for public access at its Glenview Preserve. The Land Trust has partnered with Saratoga Associates Landscape Architects, Architects, Engineers, and Planners, P.C. to create these concept designs.

The Adirondack Land Trust (ALT) is a nonprofit organization that works to protect the natural resources and beauty of the Adirondack Park. ALT is committed to preserving the natural beauty and ecological integrity of the Adirondack Park. To this end, ATL been working with Saratoga Associates to develop a plan for public access at the Glenview Preserve that will allow visitors to enjoy the property while minimizing the impact on its natural resources.

The organization’s mission is to conserve land and water resources in the Adirondack Park, to promote sustainable land use, and to support local communities.

The Glenview Preserve is a 238-acre property located in the town of Harrietstown in the Adirondack Park. ALT acquired the property in 2018, and it features a variety of habitats, including wetlands, streams, and upland forests. The property also offers stunning views of the High Peaks and the Saranac Lakes Chain. The Glenview Preserve is an important part of the Adirondack Park’s natural landscape and is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including black bears, bobcats, and coyotes. The future design aims to create concept designs that will allow the public to access and enjoy the preserve’s natural beauty while preserving its ecological integrity.

The concept designs for public access at the Glenview Preserve include a parking area, trails, and viewpoints. The designs also incorporate features such as boardwalks and bridges to protect wetland areas and streams. The goal of these designs is to provide visitors with safe and enjoyable access to the property while minimizing their impact on the land.

“Glenview is one of those extraordinary vistas one can enjoy without even hiking to the top of a mountain. We are delighted to be in a position to keep it that way.”
-Meredith Prime, ALT Board Chair Emerita

The Adirondack Land Trust is seeking feedback from the community on these draft concept designs. They hope to hear from a broad range of stakeholders, including local residents, hikers, birdwatchers, and other outdoor enthusiasts in order to ensure that they meet the needs and expectations of the public while also protecting the preserve’s natural resources.
