Protecting Chautauqua County’s Natural Resources & Scenic Beauty

ADK-NFC is pleased to welcome Mr. Twan Leenders, Director of Conservation for the Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy (CWC) to our April 11, 2023, main program which starts at 7:30, p.m. Twan will discuss CWC’s plans to identify and protect the county’s most important natural resources, rarest species, and beautiful habitats as part of the organization’s Comprehensive Regional Conservation Implementation Strategy. Learn how CWC staff combines GIS-based ecological landscape modeling, aerial monitoring with drones, and good old “boots-on-the-ground” naturalist skills to map Chautauqua County’s natural highlights & be inspired by what we are finding!

ADK-NFC Meeting Cancellation Policy
The Executive Committee approved a new policy coordinate the decision to cancel the Monthly General Meetings with the Amherst Central School Closings. Since the Amherst Community Church property abuts Amherst High School, the winter weather conditions that warrant school closings will also dictate our General Meetings. When Amherst Schools or After School Activities are cancelled on the day of our ADK meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, then our monthly general meeting will be cancelled. Cancellation news will be reinforced with emails and Facebook postings.
