                                             T            he first time I heard the words "land trust" was in 1988, when at a

                                                          friend's suggestion I called Louis McCagg, an old family

                                            acquaintance. Louis was farming a beautiful piece of property in Katonah,

Protection                                  which was subsequently preserved with the first WLT conservation easement.

                                            He was feeding the pigs and ducks, milking the cows and bringing in hay. I

                                            told him I was very concerned about increasing development in our town,

                                            Lewisboro, and wanted to do something to protect the woodlands and fields

                                            which define our community.

                                               Indeed, he said. He was forming an organization called Westchester Land

                                            Trust. Would I be interested in joining the Board of Directors?

                                               A lot has changed since then. Louis moved on after a decade. The Land

                                            Trust itself has moved - from Louis's farmhouse to a house on Main Street in

Westchester Land Trust’s 2007 projects resulted in 896 acres
               protected in six communities.

  In 2007 Westchester Land Trust surpassed 5,000 acres
                in total land protected.

  As we move into 2008, our Twentieth Anniversary year,
  our goal is to protect an additional 5,000 acres over the
                       next five years.

                                                 T             his annual report comes out on the verge of Westchester Land

                                                               Trust's 20th anniversary, so on the ensuing pages we indulge in

                                               a small celebration of land preservation over those years.

                                                  But while we celebrate great achievements throughout Westchester

                                               County, we also want to tell you about Westchester Land Trust's vision.

                                                  We're here to protect land, using all the appropriate tools and working

                                               with all the right partners. And we want to protect it for the long term.

                                                  Westchester Land Trust's intention is to protect an average of a thousand

                                               acres a year over the next five years, and to enhance our stewardship pro-

                                               gram to make sure that when land is preserved, it stays preserved.

                                                  Our goals are ambitious but achievable. We thank you for all your generosity,

 From left, Sam Pryor, chairman emeritus;      and ask you to continue your support as we protect our next 5,000 acres.

                                works to protect and
              sustain our connection to nature,
                  and nature’s connection to us.

                                                       W               hen Louis McCagg founded Westchester Land Trust 20 years

                                                                       ago, one of the first things he did was to practice what he was

                                                       preaching by protecting 12.3 acres of his own farm with a conservation ease-

    ‘88 - ‘07                                          ment. That was our first. In 2007, we completed our 150th easement, and kept

                                                       going. Our most recent was our biggest - 575 acres at Valeria, in Cortlandt.

                                                          Conservation easements remain the foundation of Westchester Land Trust's

                                                       work. They are ideal for protecting important plant and animal habitats, the

                                                       lands near sensitive wetlands or public drinking water supplies, or the scenic

                                                       views that help make communities what they are.

                                                          Large conservation easements can be important pieces of landscape-

       An easement donated by Leonard Yablon, in
        Irvington, left, protects an important view-   Dreyfus, for example, is the centerpiece of 182 acres we've protected in the
       shed; William Louis-Dreyfus’s easement, in
8             Bedford, protects important habitats.    Croton Lake Road area of Bedford; a 64-acre easement donated by
Wilhelmine Waller is essential to the 306-acre assemblage we've put together
                                                                                     Of the 5,000-plus acres
on and near Guard Hill Road in Bedford.

   But as we worked over two decades to fulfill our mission, size wasn't essential
                                                                                     we’ve protected in our

and geographic diversity was a virtue. We hold a conservation easement on
                                                                                     20 years, well over half

one-quarter of an acre in Yonkers, 0.97 acres in Ossining, 1 acre in Rye and 1.2     are on conservation
acres in Mamaroneck. (We even hold an easement on 19 acres of Long Island            easements.
Sound waterfront in North Hempstead, on Long Island.)

   Of the 5,000-plus acres we've protected in our 20 years, well over half are

on conservation easements.

   With 20 years behind us, we are working harder to find new easements.

Our goal of protecting an additional thousand acres a year over the next

five years is ambitious, and conservation easements will continue to be our

foundation.                                                                                                     9

                   Westchester Land Trust works to
                         protect our region’s drinking
                    water and the critical areas near
                         our reservoirs and wetlands.

                     The 654-acre Angle Fly Preserve helps protect
        the Croton Reservoir system. A partnership of the Town of
     Somers, New York City, New York State, Westchester County
     and Westchester Land Trust completed the acquisition, which
10          was the largest open space purchase ever in the county.

                                                                            purchase, the organization had already been around for 15

                                                            years and had protected 2,000 acres. Buying land for preservation had been
     ‘88 - ‘07                                              on almost nobody's agenda throughout the 1990s, but when attitudes

                                                            changed - strengthened by the first round of open space ballot propositions,

                                                            in 2000 - we were eager to help.

                                                               The first purchase involved the Town of Lewisboro, Westchester County,

                                                            New York State and dozens of county residents who made contributions, and

                                                            resulted in the acquisition of the Old Field Preserve, a 110-acre sanctuary in

   Each was essential as we worked toward our first 5,000 acres of pro-

tected land.

   We worked with Pound Ridge in 2007 to buy the 48-acre Eastwoods

Preserve. The Town contributed $2.3 million toward the $2.9 million price, and

Westchester Land Trust helped negotiate the deal and contributed $600,000,

thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor.

   Working with others to buy land has become an important part of our

program, and we expect it to stay that way as we strive to protect our

next 5,000 acres.

                            306 acres protected

                       Westchester Land Trust
                           works to protect the
              character of our communities
                                  and landscapes.

     Thirteen easements and two preserves help protect the
     fields and farms of the Guard Hill area. Among the
     bigger donors are the late Wilhelmine Waller, Roger

                                                                In the early 1990s, we worked with towns along the Mianus River and

                                                         the Titicus River on joint watershed protection projects. Later we helped

                                                         organize a series of discussions and workshops, called Bedford 2000, that

                                                         engaged not just Bedford residents and officials but people from surrounding

                                                         towns too.

                                                            In this decade, we’ve worked with planning boards and developers to

                                                     at 14, concentrating on the subjects that still capture his attention to this day:

                                                     machines, ancient ruins and petrochemical paraphernalia; and the beauty of

                                                     world's many endangered wolf species. He is also involved with numerous
