Winnakee Land Trust

The mission of the Winnakee Land Trust is to protect and preserve the natural
agricultural, recreational, architectural, cultural, scenic, historical,
and open space resources of northern Dutchess County.


At the heart of the Winnakee’s mission is a deep regard for the history and natural beauty of our towns and villages -Rhinebeck, Red Hook, Milan, Hyde Park, Clinton, and Tivoli. The Sepasco Indians once hunted these forested lands, where our traditional villages and farms lie now. Northern Dutchess has always had a special beauty, recognized by early settlers, Hudson Valley School painters, writers, and travelers. This unique history is in our landscape, in the farmed fields and clapboard farmhouses, the Dutch barns, Victorian villages, and riverfront mansions.
