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.”

SCHUYLER LAKE – The Otsego Land Trust announced today it has partnered with landowners Kathleen and Timothy Peters to protect 23 acres of land along Route 28 in Schuyler Lake.

Herkimer Creek, a main tributary to Canadarago Lake, runs for a substantial distance through the Peters’ property.  The creek, its associated flood plain, and riparian areas are filled with diverse plants and wildlife habitats.

“Herkimer Creek’s connection to Canadarago Lake makes it part of our all important regional watershed system,” said Virginia Kennedy, Land Trust executive director. “From the Creek to the lake to Oaks Creek to the Susquehanna to the Chesapeake Bay, all of our waters here are tied into to the huge Chesapeake Bay Watershed, providing our drinking water and water for millions downstream.  By protecting their section of Herkimer Creek, the Peters have made an important contribution to keeping our water clean.”
