Jim Bonesteel is the executive director of the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance, which is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year. The first major undertaking of this brand new all volunteer land trust in 2008 was to engage with the community and municipalities. This has fostered significant ongoing support for RPA’s conservation efforts. RPA has now conserved over 11,000 acres of forest on the Rensselaer Plateau and has created two Community Forests all with the support of the towns and villages of the region.
