Hugh Mitchell Receives The Nature Conservancy “Friend of the Land” Award

For many years Hugh Mitchell worked to preserve the rare and beautiful Hemlock/Canadice Lakes Areas. 

His efforts were recognized by the Central & Western NY Nature Conservancy by the award of a plaque which Reads,  “In recognition of your role in permanently protecting the Hemlock/Canadice Lakes.”  

Although Rochester City had done a good job over 135 years protecting the Upland Watershed of These reservoir lakes, because of budget shortages they were anxious to sell the 7,200 acres to New York State. This transfer was accomplished in June 2010 after more than 30 years of effort to permanently protect the land.
