Otsego 2000 is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1981 to ensure the Otsego Lake region remains a masterpiece of nature by protecting and supporting its environmental, scenic, cultural, historic, and agricultural resources and its economic wellbeing.

The Otsego Lake region and its surrounding landscapes, valleys, villages and farms constitute a unique confluence of historic, environmental, cultural, agricultural, rural and scenic resources. The long-term economic wellbeing of the region and the quality of life for its residents derive from our stewardship of these resources. Otsego 2000, as the first responder on environmental and sustainable development issues affecting the Otsego Lake region and beyond, seeks to protect these assets for the benefit of present and future generations. We advance our mission through informed advocacy, intelligent planning, public education, and sustainable economic alternatives.

We gratefully accept donations.
