Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County for a free workshop on land conservation opportunities.

Speakers from the Finger Lakes Land Trust, New York Agricultural Land Trust, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County, the Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service and the New York State DEC will discuss land conservation easements, purchase of development rights, NYS 480 Forest Tax Law and NRCS’s Agricultural Conservation Easement Plan (ACEP). Experts will discuss the differences in these programs and your intentions for conservation to decide what is right for you, your family and your land.
