Save The Ridge Petition:
The Shawangunk Ridge is a national treasure, designated "One of Earth's Last Great Places", by the Nature Conservancy. Now the crucial segment that connects Minnewaska state lands to the north with Sam's Point Preserve to the south is threatened by proposed development. Because it remains unfragmented, this majestic ridge supports a diversity of rare plants and animals, and is the central feature of Ulster County's tourist economy. Its viewshed stretches for hundreds of square miles. Exploitation of its fragile terrain would irreversibly destroy a
precious natural resource.
We urge that all necessary steps be taken to avert development on the Shawangunk Ridge.
