On August 24, we received approval from Chatham, New York, to accept longtime community members Jeanne and David Laskin’s gift of a beautiful house and 164 acres at 122 Daley Rd.
They have gifted us a 4,200-square-foot home, with expansive rentable living space, a spacious ground floor for Flying Deer’s offices, and a stunning 164-acre property with two outbuildings, streams, expansive forest, diverse wetlands, meadows, and more. We are amazed at the habitat diversity and thrilled to be caretakers of this precious land.
122 Daley Rd. will be Flying Deer Nature Center’s new home, but it is not ready for us yet. We aim to complete the necessary work in two phases; first, the addition of a parking lot and house improvements so office staff can move in February 2018, followed by more extensive property work so that programs can follow in the spring and summer.
For this big endeavor, we have set a 100% participation goal among our Flying Deer community. Make your safe, online contribution to the capital campaign today.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you to our new home!!
