Our Partners in Finger Lakes Water Quality Protection

Water Quality > Our Partners

The Finger Lakes Land Trust works with many partner organizations to save our lakes, streams, and drinking water.  Especially urgent is the fight against toxic algae, which calls for coordination among agencies, municipalities, communities, and individuals.  Please also see our Water Quality hub and watershed maps of all 11 lakes.
