Pine Bush Fight Goes Nationwide

Save the Pine Bush featured in August '92 Backpacker magazine

by Lynne Jackson

Along with an excellent article about how sound environmental practices can enhance the economy, the August Backpacker magazine features a one-page story about the battle to save the Pine Bush as a "Good Fight."

Last fall, Backpacker magazine interviewed one of the founders of Save the Pine Bush, Mark Plaat. Mark gave the reporter from Backpacker a personal tour of the Pine Bush. In the article, a couple of SPB's sucesses are outlined, including our battle to save the Blueberry Hill area (purchased for preserve by the State in 1989) and our influence on the creation of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission.
The two photographs included in the article, one of the Pine Bush and the other of the Karner Blue, are beautiful.

And, of course, Backpacker mentions the great hiking trails in the Pine Bush, and that SPB conducts walks and hikes year-round.

Already, SPB has received letters from readers wanting to learn more about the Pine Bush.
