Camillus Valley Natural Area - Central New York Land Trust
Village of Camillus, New York

Fall 2007

Topic Areas: Parks and Recreation planning and design
Project Scale: Site Master Plan
Accomplished by: 3rd year undergraduate landscape design studio (LSA326) – Faculty: Robin Hoffman, Kathy Stribley, Margaret Bryant, and Dan Reeder CCDR: Maren King
Partners: Central New York Land Trust, and the Village of Camillus

Questions explored:

How can a design study help guide land trust property management and public access decision-making?

How can a design process be facilitated to help forge a sense of stewardship and ownership in community members?

Project Description:

The Camillus Valley Natural Area (CVNA) is a 250 acre site along Nine Mile Creek between the Village of Camillus and Martisco Station. It is recognized regionally for its natural systems, native vegetation and wildlife. The Central New York Land Trust (formerly Save the County Land Trust), the property owner, initiated a participatory design process with the assistance of the CCDR to explore ideas to improve recreational use and access. Landscape architecture students worked with the land trust and Village and community residents to investigate site conditions, determine possible improvement elements and characteristics, and prepare alternative design studies for review and discussion.

The project is summarized in the Design Process Summary Document.
