In the 1980s and the early 1990s, a diverse group of dedicated people recognized the need for a land trust in Western New York. Throughout the region, forests and farmlands were being lost to rapid urban expansion, even as the region lost population. Most of the region was not covered by a land trust. After many meetings, thoughtful discussions, and much paperwork, the Western New York Land Conservancy was formally registered as a new not-for-profit organization in 1991.
