In 2009 35 people came together to found the Buckingham Pond Conservancy.  Since then we've grown in size and capacity - coordinating clean ups, hosting social events, finding grants to help the pond, building relationships with City staff, sampling the pond's water and so much more.  Each year we come together just one time to celebrate our successes and revisit our priorities.  Be a part of it!

Pond Pictures on All Over Albany

The Annual Meeting on Sunday was terrific - more than 50 neighbors turned out and we generated a lot of ideas for 2010.

I'll be posting the meeting notes shortly, but thought everyone would like to see that photos of our own pond were featured on All Over Albany.

First Meeting a Success

Posted in

The Buckingham Pond Conservancy is off and running. Thirty-three people met at Bethany Reformed Church on Saturday, January 24th, for an energetic kick off of our new organization. There was a clear consensus among meeting participants that Buckingham Pond is the jewel of the neighborhood. Concerns focused primarily on the health of the pond, traffic and pedestrian safety, and maintenance of the park.

First Meeting Saturday 1/24 12 noon

You are invited to become a founding member of the Buckingham Pond Conservancy, a newly forming non-partisan group dedicated to protecting, preserving, and enhancing Buckingham Pond Park. While members of the Conservancy will determine its activities, we envision a group that works closely with Albany City departments to plan improvements and provide assistance when appropriate. Likely areas of focus would be trees and other plantings, trails, water quality, traffic, playground, etc.
