"Guarding & Enhancing Our Natural Resources for Tomorrow"

Located in Northern New York, just forty miles from Canada,  Lewis County is home to the Black River Valley, the Adirondack Park and the Tug Hill Plateau. 
Our goal is to assist our local farmers and citizens in protecting and enhancing the natural resources and ecology of our beautiful county.
