Western New York Land Conservancy
Founded in 1991, the Western New York Land Conservancy is an accredited, regional not-for-profit land trust that permanently protects land with significant conservation values in Western New York for the benefit of present and future generations. We envision a future in which open spaces, wildlife habitat, working lands, and scenic beauty are cherished and protected as part of the landscape and character of Western New York.
Western New York is home to some of North America’s most important natural treasures. Our region encompasses two Great Lakes, Niagara Falls, and the Niagara Gorge. It includes the Appalachian foothills to the south, vast networks of meandering rivers and streams, and impressive stretches of forests. Our farm soils are some of the most fertile and productive in the world. All of this natural wealth surrounds cities and villages that are becoming more vibrant each year. The Land Conservancy’s diverse programs give our staff opportunities to work in all of these places. For more information, please visit: www.wnylc.org
