Description: The Finger Lakes Land Trust is working throughout Tompkins County and beyond within a 12-county Finger Lakes Land Trust service area to ensure the permanent protection of significant bird habitat. To date, the organization has conserved more than 23,000 acres. The Land Trust owns and manages a network of 30 nature preserves and holds 140 conservation easements on land that remains in private ownership. It also assists other nonprofit organizations and government conservation agencies in establishing parks and establishing public conservation areas. Come learn about efforts underway to secure a half dozen Audubon-designated Important Bird Areas as well as the Land Trust’s habitat management program that includes the restoration of wetlands and the creation and maintenance of grass and shrub land habitats. Doors open at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation starting at 7:15. Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the presentation. All are welcome.
