Watch the Finger Lakes Land Trust’s “Finger Lakes Forever” campaign success video that celebrates the thousands of individual donors and dozens of organizational partners who helped us raise over $22,400,000 for conservation in our beautiful region! ¬†Some 79 conservation projects have been advanced through the campaign, protecting 5,937 acres of land, 33.5 miles of streambank, and 14,124 feet of lakeshore. Thanks to this overwhelming support, the Land Trust has surpassed major milestones including 5 miles of lakeshore saved, 29,000 total acres under protection, and 53 miles of trails open to the public. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this monumental and collective effort to protect land and water permanently! See the campaign report at
