Mission Statement

Morgan Duke Conservation Society is committed to aiding and supporting numerous conservation projects in the Adirondack Mountains and other places. There are multiple types of projects that we typically involve ourselves in, but all of them come together to support the larger role of conservation. Many of these projects are carried out in the same Hudson River Recreation Area that first gave James Sullivan the vision for the Morgan Duke Conservation Society. Specifically, some of the projects we work on are: Reforestation, and other replanting projects to replace vegetation harmed by human footfalls; Providing duck nest boxes and other types of birdhouses; Conducting beach cleanups on the sand dunes, shorelines and on the trails in the forests.

Description

These natural areas have existed for generations, but their continued health is in our hands. Whether we want it or not, it is our responsibility. And failing to fulfill that responsibility will mean a loss of these beautiful areas for our children and grandchildren.

While the natural areas we work on might be called recreation areas, the reality is they are natural areas that serve as the home to many different species. Our health and well being depends on this local ecology staying healthy. While we have the power to determine the fate of these natural areas, we don’t have the power to avoid the consequences if we fail to act.
