Rock The Ridge supports a great cause: preserving and providing access to over 8,000 acres of the Shawangunk Mountains region, land which The Nature Conservancy has described as “one of Earth's last great places.” We salute all Ridge Rockers, who since 2013 have collectively raised nearly $700,000 to support Mohonk Preserve and our award-winning conservation science, environmental education, and land protection and stewardship programs.
Your participation and donation, no matter the size, will go far to support Mohonk Preserve’s mission of protecting the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspiring people to care for, enjoy and explore their natural world.
Mohonk Preserve is the largest member and visitor-supported nature preserve in New York State. Mohonk Preserve:
- Protects the Shawangunk Mountains’ ecosystem through land management practices based on science-based ecological research;
- Preserves the cultural landscape in harmony with its history and heritage;
- Provides education programs for children and adults that increase their understanding of the relationships between themselves and nature;
- Promotes responsible recreation and enjoyment of the land in keeping with its fragility, serenity, and natural beauty.
With warm regards and deep appreciation for your support,
The Rock The Ridge Team
