Have you ever stopped to think about the efforts that go into maintaining the natural spaces here in Western New York?
Western New York Land Conservancy is on a mission to protect our region’s forests, farms, meadows, and waterways for the benefit of future generations. The Land Conservancy has helped to protect more than 90 properties in Western New York and with their latest ribbon cutting at Mossy Point, this is another step in doing so.
Mossy Point is 216 acres situated along Hunters Creek, and is a vital component of the Niagara River watershed. After $1.6 million was raised in 2020 in an effort to preserve the land, it is now officially open to the public.
In visiting the preserve which is open from dawn to dusk, you’ll find 2.1 miles of trails to explore and take in the natural surroundings. If you are planning a visit, you’ll want to park at the Hunters Creek’s lower parking lot where you will find the trailhead.
