Ed Miller Receives MHLC Award: MHLC Inaugurates Partnership with Landis

By Nolan Marciniec

Pic­ture­Mark King of the MHLC presents Ed Miller with the Sav­ing Spe­cial Places” award.

Ed Miller, founder and cura­tor of the Lan­dis Arboretum’s Native Plant Trail, was award­ed the Sav­ing Spe­cial Places Award by the Mohawk-Hud­son Land Con­ser­van­cy (MHLC) at a cer­e­mo­ny held in Albany on April 14.

Accord­ing to Mark King, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Con­ser­van­cy, the award rec­og­nizes an indi­vid­ual for his or her sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to land con­ser­va­tion in our region.” He point­ed out that Ed’s gen­eros­i­ty and advo­ca­cy have con­tributed to the pro­tec­tion of the Jorale­mon Park in Coey­mans, an area wide­ly known for its out­stand­ing plant diver­si­ty that thrives on the area’s lime­stone-based soils.” He also not­ed Ed’s pas­sion for the Wolf Hol­low area in Sch­enec­tady County. 

Jim Paley, pres­i­dent of Lan­dis’ Board of Trustees, point­ed out that the award was a cat­a­lyst for forg­ing a spe­cial rela­tion­ship between the Arbore­tum and MHLC since both espouse a sim­i­lar respect for the envi­ron­ment. He said that each will share arti­cles in the other’s newslet­ters and that MHLC is con­sid­er­ing hold­ing an event at the Arboretum. 

The MHLC’s mis­sion — the preser­va­tion of nat­ur­al, scenic, agri­cul­tur­al, and cul­tur­al land­scapes in part­ner­ship with landown­ers, not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions, busi­ness­es, and gov­ern­ments for the ben­e­fit of cur­rent and future gen­er­a­tions — makes its new rela­tion­ship with the Arbore­tum a nat­ur­al fit.
