The Chestnut Ridge Conservancy held its 7th Annual Meeting at the MacKinnon Shelter on Saturday May 6.

In addition to reports of our 2016 successes from President Justine LeFauve and our 2017 calendar of events from Vice President Ron Michnik,  Administrative Advisor Bill Even presented an autographed antique photo of the original six Erie County Parks Commissioners taken back in 1924.

You can read more about the photograph, as well as the upcoming Civil War Reenactment (August 25-27) in the latest edition of Ridge Times now available for download at

Many thanks to M&T Bank for their generous grant in support of our meeting, and to John Mills of J. Mills Distribution for providing us with a hot dog lunch.

2017 got off to a great start!
