"Guarding & Enhancing Our Natural Resources for Tomorrow"

Located in Northern New York,  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.

What's Happening:

 We are now operating from our temporary location, Room 104 at 5960 Main Street, Glenfield NY (The former Glenfield Elementary School).  This will be our home until our new office is completed on the corner of NYS Rte 812 and the East Road.
*All staff are currently working from one room. 
Please call ahead and make an appointment so we can best serve you!*
