Watch the video to learn about a wonderful new conservation project that will build upon the major victory at Bell Station last year! The Cedar View addition will add 110 acres of scenic vistas, productive farm fields, lakeshore woodlands, and a former golf course, creating grassland habitat for migratory songbirds such as Bobolinks, Savannah Sparrows, and Eastern Meadowlarks. Together the Bell Station and Cedar View properties will create one of the largest shoreline areas dedicated to wildlife conservation in the Finger Lakes region! Visit to learn more and support the project. Thank you!
