The Land Trust has the opportunity to create a new conservation area on Owasco Lake. Over 1,100 feet of undeveloped, pristine shoreline will be protected with the purchase of 74 acres on the eastern shore. We are raising money to purchase the property, open it to the public, and steward the land forever. Please support the project.
Thanks to our members, volunteers, landowners, and local communities, the Land Trust achieved a major milestone this year—over 20,000 acres of our beautiful region are now permanently protected. See the numbers.
