Project Description

Size: 41 acres
Location: Town of Oswego
Classification: Emerald
Trails: Yes

This preserve is located between Snake Swamp Road and Lake Ontario. This property was originally owned by Save Oswego County (SOC) and was deeded to CNYLT in 1998 when SOC merged with CNYLT. The property contains a flooded shrub swamp created by a beach barrier bar separating it from Lake Ontario. Numerous bird species have been found. To reach the property, head west for 0.5 mile on Lake Shore Road (aka Snake Swamp Road) from the intersection of Cemetery Road (aka Cobblestone Road) and Lake Shore Road past the last house on the north. At the end of the lawn of the last house, the woods commence. After about 30 more feet, a narrow trail leads north to the shore of the lake and the barrier beach.
