Mission Statement

Morgan Duke Conservation Society is committed to aiding and supporting numerous conservation projects in the Adirondack Mountains Catskill Park and other locations throughout the country. 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.

Description

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.
