preserving open space in ulster county
to benefit present and future generations


The Illinois Mountain Easement is in the Town of Lloyd. It encompasses 47 acres, and was donated to the Wallkill Valley Land Trust by Peter Bienstock in June 1998. Immediately upon the closing of that transaction, WVLT placed an easement on the property and gave the land to the Town of Lloyd for a future park. In addition to being a future park, this property preserves water quality as it is within the watershed of the Town of Lloyd’s reservoirs.
