Legislature Approves Capital Reserve Funds for Environmental Preservation Projects

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

The Legislature, without dissent, voted to allocate $20,000 from the Capital Reserve Fund for Natural, Scenic, and Recreational Resources Protection to support additions to two existing nature preserves in Tompkins County.  The action provides funding toward acquisition by the Finger Lakes Land Trust of 30 acres to be added to the Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve in the Town of Danby and toward a 24-acre addition to the Roy H. Park Preserve in the Town of Dryden.  The two acquisitions by the Land Trust will protect wetlands and undeveloped land in those areas and will serve as key links between protected lands within the Emerald Necklace greenbelt.
