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.” In addition, the Mohonk Preserve holds a special place in our hearts, as it is a place our grandfather held dear--a place he dedicated much of his retirement time to before his passing. We began this crazy journey, 150 miles ago, to honor Pa and all he meant to us.
Your 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. Ideals Pa believed in.
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.
Thank you for your support,
Jason and John
