About the Finger Lakes Land Trust

The Finger Lakes Land Trust (FLLT) was founded in 1989 to protect forests, farmlands, gorges, and shorelines in the Finger Lakes region of New York.  We have saved over 31,000 acres by creating public nature preserves and helping landowners to conserve their beloved properties.  We are a small nonprofit organization.  You can join and volunteer.
