Watchable Wildlife in the Finger Lakes

In 1990 the National Watchable Wildlife Program was established to help people find and enjoy wildlife. Sites where wildlife can routinely be seen were identified and guide books were published. In New York State, 76 sites were listed. (This is certainly not a definitive list but a good start.) Of those, 12 are in the Finger Lakes Region.
