You’ve got a busy schedule. There’s work, kids, pets, the spouse, granny… You’ve got parties, get togethers, social engagements and you’re juggling multiple social media accounts. And then you have to clean the guest house for this weekend’s AirBnB guests… We get it, you’re so busy it’ll make our head spin… So, how could you possibly find time to add another thing to your already packed plate, let alone volunteer your time? Well, it’s simple, because the Kingston Land Trust is an amazing organization and WE NEED YOU!!!

The Kingston Land Trust’s mission is to protect, connect and activate urban open spaces in and around Kingston NY. Our board and members are also volunteers who put in tons of overtime to help make Kingston one of the most special and unique places to live and visit in New York State.

Our main initiative at the moment is the Kingston Greenline, ever heard of it? It’s a major project that involves converting abandoned railroad tracks in Kingston into a series of trails and parks for the public to use and enjoy. If you know anything about the Highline in NYC (a similar rail to trail project), then you can imagine how incredible this could be for Kingston and the surrounding area. But we need some serious HELP to make this amazing vision into reality!

WE NEED YOU!!! Here’s some ideas how you can help…
