"Guarding & Enhancing Our Natural Resources for Tomorrow"

Pardon our mess... We are MOVING!
In August 2022 our office will be moving to the former Glenfield Elementary School.  This will be a temporary location until our new office is completed on the corner of NYS Rte 812 and the East Road.
  Please be patient with us as we will need time to make this transition.
More information will be posted here as it becomes available to us.

*It is always best to call ahead and make
an appointment so we can best serve you!* 

Thank You!

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.
