You can help save the Oswegatchie Hills!
We welcome organizations and individuals to show your support for preserving the remaining unprotected 236 acres of the Oswegatchie Hills from ill-conceived development.
Over 20 local, regional, and state-wide organizations have joined the Save Oswegatchie Hills Coalition and hundreds of individual supporters have signed the petition. Our goal is to see the remaining 236 acres of this undeveloped coastal forest conserved—and there’s a viable path to doing so, by acquiring the land and adding it to the adjoining Oswegatchie Hills Nature Preserve. This will achieve an almost-700-acre contiguous forest preserved as natural habitat for birds, wildlife, and aquatic species. Learn more about the Oswegatchie Hills and the fight to protect them.
If you believe the best use of this vulnerable coastal forest is preservation, not development, please join us.
