We Can Do It!  Let’s Complete the Six Mile Creek Protection Project Together; Over $215,000 Already Raised.

With your help, we are acting on a rare chance to buy land that buffers 12,000 feet of shoreline along Six Mile Creek and its tributaries upstream of Ithaca.  We have raised over 72% of our goal, and together we can complete the job!  Six Mile Creek is beautiful in all seasons, treasured for recreation, and vital as the source of drinking water for thousands who live and work in the City of Ithaca.  Let’s protect it forever.  See the Story
