Why are you a member?

We value the work of the FLLT. The Finger Lakes region has been fortunate to not experience the rates of development we see in large urban areas. Nevertheless, without care and vigilance we can lose much of what makes our area special. The FLLT plays a key role in preserving what is special about the Finger Lakes.

How long have you been a member of FLLT?

We just recently joined in 2020.

What’s your favorite FLLT activity and/or preserve, and why?

We enjoy hiking and birdwatching, but more than anything we enjoy getting outside and the special feeling of getting closer to nature. Our favorite preserve is the Bock-Harvey Forest Preserve. We enjoy exploring different preserves and would love to see them all.

Anything else you would like to add?

FLLT is a treasure. Keep up the good work!
