Somerset Family Protects Lake Ontario Land Forever
Thanks to our new partnership with Ducks Unlimited, and landowners, Tom and Susan Carestia, 63 acres on Lake Ontario in the Town of Somerset are now protected forever and habitat restoration is underway. This lakefront treasure has a mixture of wetlands, farmland, shrubland, and successional and mature forest that are a haven for birds and wildlife of all kinds. In addition to protecting this land for future generations, the Carestias wanted to restore habitat there, too. Ducks Unlimited is about to begin work to restore eight acres of native grassland and five acres of emergent marsh in the southern portion of the property. The restoration will also include plants to support our declining pollinators, like butterflies, bees, and other important species. Click here to read the whole story…
