During the coming months, the Land Trust intends to improve and restore foot trails on the Nemec tract and an adjacent parcel bordering Carpenter's Falls. The Land Trust is also working on several conservation easements that will secure private lands that play an important role in maintaining the water quality of Skaneateles Lake.
The Finger Lakes Land Trust was established in 1989 to work cooperatively with landowners and local communities to conserve those lands that define the character of the region.
It has protected more than 8,900 acres of the region's pristine natural areas, scenic farmland, and undeveloped lakefront.
The organization today owns and maintains a network of 24 nature preserves that are open to the public. The Land Trust also works cooperatively with 56 families to jointly steward lands subject to conservation easements.
