About Save the Pine Bush

The Pine Bush is a globally rare ecosystem, located between the cities of Albany and Schenectady in the eastern part of New York. I believe that Albany is the only capital city in the country with a unique ecosystem within its borders (please write me if you know differently).

Pine Bush preservation, like all land use issues, is complex. This web page consists of articles describing the battle for Pine Bush preservation, descriptions of the Pine Bush and why it is important, photographs, and strategies Save the Pine Bush has used.

In addition to keeping you updated on the struggle to save the Pine Bush, it is our hope that what we have learned in our battle for Pine Bush preservation will be helpful to others.

This web page is designed, edited, and updated by Lynne Jackson, a volunteer with Save the Pine Bush. Please email comments to her at pinebush@aol.com.
