Watch a recording of the Finger Lakes Land Trust’s (FLLT) virtual “Finger Lakes Forever” campaign announcement from Thursday, March 31, 2022, and learn about the organization’s $20 million dollar capital campaign to protect lands and waters across the region.
The FLLT has already raised $18 million and is grateful for this critical early support. Campaign funds have enabled the organization to open several new nature preserves to the public, expand existing conservation areas across the region, and acquire lands in partnership with local and state agencies.
Over the course of the next year, the FLLT plans to protect an additional 2,000 acres and 4,400 feet of lakeshore through direct land acquisitions and perpetual conservation easements. Featured projects include the acquisition of the Bell Station property on Cayuga Lake; the creation of three new public access points to the popular Finger Lakes Trail; protecting Seneca Lake shoreline; and securing key parcels within the Canandaigua and Skaneateles lake watersheds.
