The Columbia Land Conservancy would like to welcome you to Greenport Conservation Area! Named for the town of Greenport, the over 700-acre property has seven miles of trails that will take you through a variety of ecological systems including meadows, shrublands, forests, and freshwater tidal marshes. What you will see here has been greatly influenced by past land use, specifically agriculture, clay mining, and brick making. Today, the site is a popular destination for walking, birdwatching, picnicking, skiing, snowshoeing, and many other activities.

It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge Public Conservation Areas are located on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people, who are the Indigenous peoples of this land. Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. This land is near the homelands of other Indigenous peoples and First Nations, including the Schaghticoke First Nations. Indigenous peoples continue efforts to reclaim and steward the land today. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.
