The Preservation Collective joined local and state officials at a rally held in the Town of Chester to support open space preservation. The movement to protect watersheds, preserve historic properties and save productive farms continues to grow in Orange County.

The public attended the event to hear speakers talk in support of legislation that would allow municipalities to vote on preservation funding. Currently, there are sponsored bills specific for the Town of Chester and the Town of Blooming Grove in the NYS Legislature.
