About

The Cayuga Lake Watershed Network is a community organization with citizens, businesses, associations, and local governments from throughout the Cayuga Lake Watershed. Members protect and improve the ecological health and overall beauty of the watershed, which supports thriving and prosperous communities.

Located in the Finger Lakes Region of central New York, the watershed is comprised of three counties with lake shoreline (Cayuga, Seneca and Tompkins) and four counties (Cortland, Ontario, Schuyler, and Tioga) in the uplands of the watershed.

Our Board of Directors is composed of up to 15 members, who serve three-year staggered terms. Three Directors, one of whom is Vice Chair, are selected from each of the three counties with lakeshore frontage (Cayuga, Seneca and Tompkins). The other Directors may reside anywhere in the Watershed and therefore are considered “At-Large”.
