TILT Supports the Thousand Islands Regional Assessment Project

We supports the Thousand Islands Regional Assessment Project as a means to provide our local communities with the tools to encourage smart growth and development that complements and enhances our precious natural resources.

The final draft report, now released to the public, is the most comprehensive assessment of the Thousand Islands region that has been done - ever! It is the result of several years of work to inventory the scenic resources of the Thousand Islands region in order to apply for a designation as a Scenic Area of Statewide Significance (SASS).

Read this recent Watertown Daily Times article to learn more about the report. And please, feel free to contact TILT Executive Director Jake Tibbles directly with any questions relating to the Thousand Islands Land Trust: 315-686-5345.

TILT's First Inspirational Video is Live!

We are pleased to share an exciting new video about the Thousand Islands Land Trust (TILT), created by the McLellan Group, that conveys why land conservation and environmental education in the 1000 Islands is so important:

Please share your love of the 1000 Islands by passing along this video to your family and friends!

So many people helped create this video - from the supporters and partners that were interviewed, to the TILT trustees who reviewed and gave input throughout the process. And the making of this video would not have been possible without the generous support of the following:
- The McLellan Group
- Foxy's/Channelside/The Johnston House
- Green Meadow Consulting
- Taylored Architecture
- Uncle Sam Boat Tours

Together, Conserving The Place We Love!
