The Finger Lakes Land Trust was founded in 1989 to protect those lands that define the character of the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. To date, the Land Trust has protected more than 13,000 acres of the region's wetlands, forests, farmland, grassland, and gorges. This has been accomplished through the establishment of nature preserves that are open to the public for quiet recreation, the use of conservation easements (voluntary agreements on private lands), and the provision of technical assistance and educational programs to local governments, landowners, and the public.

The Land Trust is a nonprofit organization supported primarily by membership donations and grants from private foundations. We hope you'll become a member and support the work we do.

Scientific Advisory Network
 

The New York Invasive Species Information Website - NYIS.INFO and its host, the New York Invasive Species Clearinghouse, [the two are jointly referred to as NYIS.INFO] were founded in October 2008. NYIS.INFO is funded with New York State Environmental Protection Fund resources through a contract with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. NYIS.INFO was established in response to Recommendation 5 of the November 2005 report of the New York State Invasive Species Task Force report to the Governor and Legislature. The Task Force recommended that the State should integrate invasive species databases and information clearinghouses. This resulted in the creation of the invasive species database and mapping project iMapInvasives and the information clearinghouse project, NYIS.INFO.
