Protected Properties

CPF owns 14 properties that total 380 acres in the Village and Town of Cazenovia. Five of these properties host approximately 13 miles of public recreational trails. Other properties are owned to protect wetland values and open space. From time to time, properties are donated to CPF to use as tradelands, or for sale with the proceeds going to CPF to further our conservation work.
