Annual Report

Independence River Hike & Picnic

Your support is making a difference as we continue to grow together.  Improvements to the Joseph A. Blake, Jr. Wildlife Sanctuary continued in 2014, with the expansion of the trail system and the creation of a parking area and signage.  Helping to further our goal of making the land more accessible to the community.

Work also continued with our partners at Ft. Drum and Ducks Unlimited on the Army Compatible Use Buffer (ACUB) program, and we completed the  agricultural conservation easement on the Marks Farm in Martinsburg, Lewis County, which resulted from the environmental mitigation agreement resulting from the manure lagoon breech into the Black River in 2006.

Please take a few moments to look through our annual report and see how your commitment made a difference.
