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.
