The Husband and I are blessed with a beautiful property in Schuyler Lake. We decided several years ago it was worth preserving, and opted to get a conservation easement on our 22 acres through the Otsego Land Trust (OLT). We have our own land to explore and enjoy, but the Land Trust has open spaces available for everyone.

SCHUYLER LAKE – Approximately 440 trees and shrubs were planted by 10 volunteers along the edge of Herkimer Creek as it runs past Kathy & Tim Peters’ Schuyler Lake farmstead this morning.

“We need to build up over 10,000 acres of riparian forest buffer across New York to help solve the problem of pollution in the Chesapeake Bay,” said Lydia Brinkley, Riparian Buffer Forest Coordinator for the Upper Susquehanna Coalition.  “Having trees and plants next to streams is one of the most effective practices for reducing runoff and creating habitats.”
