Energy & Environment

Abundant natural resources and a superior natural environment make New York one of the most desired places to visit and live. New York is home to two Great Lakes, the Finger Lakes, the Adirondack and Catskill forest preserves, rich farmland, and hundreds of miles of beaches. All of these features contribute to New York’s important environmental heritage. Each region of the state has important natural resources to protect and conserve for current and future generations.
