New York


The quality and quantity of our freshwater resources are essential to life. New York has more than 7,600 freshwater lakes, ponds and reservoirs, two Great Lakes and over 70,000 miles of rivers and streams. The Nature Conservancy is working to protect the health and abundance of these waters for all New Yorkers.
