Although we often think about vast forests as the conservation ideal, even patchworks of smaller “backyards” can be important natural assets. The vast majority of land owners in New York State have less than 20 acres. With good stewardship planning, this land—wooded or not—can have even greater value.
By enhancing or creating natural areas and woods on your property, you can enjoy recreation, scenery, wildlife, and good water quality. By looking at how your property connects with other natural areas or potential natural areas, there’s ample opportunity to make an even bigger impact! Owners of even just a few acres can make a positive difference in their environment through planning and implementing simple stewardship practices learned during The Woods In Your Backyard webinar series.
