Welcome to Save the Pine Bush!

Forty-three years of fighting for the Pine Bush

Save the Pine Bush is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to saving the Albany Pine Bush and Karner Blue habitat in New York State, a globally rare ecosystem in New York State. We stop developers by suing the government using environmental laws.

The fight for Pine Bush preservation has all the elements of a good novel – except it is real. David vs. Goliath – volunteers vs. City Hall. Check out our current battles or read about how we got to where we are today.
