The Indian River Lakes Conservancy, a donor supported land trust, is dedicated to preserving the unique natural resources of the Indian River Lakes Region of Northern New York State.

Community means everything to us here at the Indian River Lakes Conservancy.  To protect the health of our community, all IRLC’s events have been cancelled for the next 8 weeks per the CDC’s guidelines.  We will keep you updated about our event schedule as the risk of group gatherings passes. To sign up for emails, visit this page.

In the meantime, we invite you to spend some time outdoors on our trails.  Please follow social distancing protocols by staying 6 feet away from other visitors.  If you meet someone on the trail, step far enough off the trail to allow them safe passage.  Do not touch benches, tables, or doors.

Each weekday, we will also be posting activities on our Facebook Page.

The IRLC staff will be primarily working remotely, but will be available by email at, as always.

In this unprecedented time, we remain committed to promoting thriving communities in a healthy and diverse natural environment.  Part of that commitment is doing what we can to preserve the health of the people who call this special place home.  Stay calm and balance the stress of these uncertain times by spending time outdoors.
