Glenmere Conservation Coalition

A non-profit alliance of organizations and individuals dedicated to natural history research of 
Orange County's Glenmere Reservoir lands.

Orange County NY's Glenmere Reservoir Lands, comprised of Glenmere Lake and the upper Black Meadow Creek, host NY State's largest and virtually last habitat of the Northern Cricket Frog (Acris crepitans), listed as "Endangered" in New York State. Glenmere presents one of the largest contiguous wild areas in Orange County, the fastest-growing county in New York State and the Glenmere lands are the most bio-diverse natural feature of Orange County. The Glenmere lands present a classic paradigm of endangered species habitat elimination despite legislation drafted to "protect" them.    

All Volunteer
The GCC receives no public monies and operates solely on private donations. All GCC members are volunteers and every donation goes directly to the help the conservation of the Glenmere Reservoir Lands. The GCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. 

Please help us protect Orange County's most biodiverse area and the endangered species that reside there.
