Donation-based Nonprofit Consulting and Speaking Services for Socially Responsible Conservation  

The KLT has been sought out for our leadership in the realm of what we call Socially Responsible Conservation. We have received requests from fellow land trusts to share with them how we approach our work, and we are happy to extend this orientation to any organization that may be seeking it through consultation or speaking engagements. 


Consulting Services:

The following are areas we feel equipped to offer guidance. As we are still growing in these areas, we are happy to recommend additional resources, and share our network of consultants, advisors and thought partners if your needs go beyond our level of experience.

  • Responsive, equitable and inclusive land acquisition/use/access and program development
  • Food access
  • Spanish and bilingual outreach and engagement
  • African heritage protection
  • Youth leadership and stewardship
  • Authentic community partnerships 
    • Working with BIPOC-led organizations
    • Working with unincorporated community groups
    • Working with businesses
    • Working with municipalities
  • Alternative organizational models
    • Organizational structure: shared leadership/non-hierarchy
    • Orientation to the Community Land Trust model


Want to book us?

Reach out at or (845) 877-5263. If both of our organizations determine we are the right fit, our staff will determine which of us would be available to offer the deepest support in the area you are seeking (feel free to request specific staff member/s).

In the spirit of collaboration, sharing, inclusiveness and accessibility, the Kingston Land Trust does not charge for our services, rather we request a honorarium to help to sustain and deepen our own work. This suggested donation is presented below as a sliding scale so that organizations with more resources can help us lend capacity to aligned organizations with fewer resources. If the suggested donation amount is not possible, just let us know how much you are able to contribute, or suggest an in-kind offer, and we will assess our capacity to support you.
