Mendon Foundation, Inc.

The Mendon Foundation is the first and only not-for-profit organization dedicated exclusively to promoting the rich environmental heritage of the communities in and adjacent to Southeastern Monroe County. Our all-volunteer organization enriches the lives of our donors and their community by working with the local municipal governments, local contributors and local volunteers to preserve, protect and enhance the scenic, natural, recreational, structural and historical resources of critical cultural significance. Some of the things that we’re best known for include: Land Acquisition & Open Space Preservation: We now have approximately 160 acres of publicly accessible land in our land trust. We preserve this open space through the creation of nature reserves and through plantings, such as warm weather grasses. The Lehigh Valley Trail: In many ways our signature project, we developed (through a federal grant) and maintain Monroe County’s 14 mile linear trail encompassing the old Lehigh Valley Railroad bed in the towns of Mendon and Rush.

We focus on: The Environment, Education

Where we are: Livingston, Monroe
