The Rensselaer Plateau Alliance works with the community to conserve the Rensselaer Plateau’s unfragmented forests and important wetlands. Together, we’re keeping our air and water clean, providing places to play, learn, and unwind, and ensuring that the wildlife and people of the Rensselaer Plateau region continue to thrive as the world changes.
