Our Mission

The purpose or purposes for which the corporation is formed are as follows:

(a) To preserve and protect the environmental quality of Orange County, NY and surrounding areas from overdevelopment that threatens to contaminate natural resources, including efforts to promote the sustainability of all resources. Through its efforts, the corporation will help ensure the current and future generations of county residents will continue to enjoy its predominantly non-urban character and largely unspoiled land, water, flora, and fauna.

(b) To preserve and defend the constitutional and historic separation of religion from government institutions in order to protect the public interest of the citizens of Orange County.


Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
