Roohan Family Donates 189 acres of land in Town of Greenfield to Skidmore College

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY (May 30, 2017)– Michael and Margarate Roohan, owners of Granite & Marble Works in Wilton, N.Y., have donated to Skidmore a land tract of 189 acres in the Town of Greenfield.

The donation made on December 27 is adjacent to land tracts of 200 acres donated by the couple in 2010, and nearly 120 neighboring acres donated in 2014. All parcels are undeveloped woodland in Greenfield, located near Skidmore College's North Woods property that lies behind the College's Van Lennep Riding Center.

Mike Roohan explains, "We feel strongly about supporting Skidmore College. Its people and programs add so much to the quality of life in Saratoga Springs, and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to give back to the College.

In making their earlier land donation, the Roohans had explained, "Skidmore's creative, multidisciplinary approach to using this land for teaching, research, and recreation assures the most valuable use for the greatest number of participants, and mostly importantly assures the education of future generations in the care of our natural surroundings."

Few northeastern colleges have woodlands as large and as near to campus as Skidmore's notes President Philip A. Glotzbach, adding that the gifts are highly valued by the college "and will be of great interest to our faculty and students."

Skidmore woodlands have been used for research and classroom learning in disciplines ranging from environmental studies and sciences to anthropology to American studies. The college is currently working on a sustainable stewardship plan for all of its underdeveloped land.
