Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District ... since 1944
As of May 24, 2021, the Cayuga County Soil and Water Conservation District office will reopen. Based on CDC and NYS guidance and the increasing amount of vaccinated people in the community, the Natural Resource Center is open to public visitors. To keep positive momentum going, we ask that visitors observe the following instructions for entering the building:
If you are fully vaccinated (at least 2 weeks past your final dose), you are no longer required to wear a face mask or practice physical distancing in the Natural Resource Center.
If you are NOT fully vaccinated (at least 2 weeks past your final dose), CDC guidance and NYS guidance indicates you must continue to wear a face mask and maintain physical distancing.
If you are fully vaccinated (at least weeks past your final dose), and prefer to continue to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing while in the Natural Resource Center, feel free to do so at your convenience.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience!
