LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- The Lewisboro Land Trust recently received the Westchester County's Soil & Water Achievement Award for the Trust's Leon Levy Preserve Native Plant Garden.

The Leon Levy Preserve boasts hardwood forests, a ravine with 25-foot cliffs, views west toward the Hudson, and the ruins of a 32 room stone mansion. About 90 acres lie within the watershed of New York City’s Croton Reservoir system, and the rest of the land drains into Stamford’s reservoirs.

The Trust has helped preserve over 1,000 acres in Lewisboro since its founding in 1994. The organization said it's 20th anniversary has renewed their commitment to keep up the environmental stewardship, responsibility for nature, and education of adults and children through experience, exposure and education.

The awards ceremony was at the Westchester County Center.
