This sensitive ecosystem was slated for residential development by the Chappaqua Central School District (CCSD) and was recently made available for sale by open bid after the development deal fell apart.  Friends of Buttonhook Forest in Partnership with Brothertown Indian Nation submitted a bid to the CCSD for purchase of  this land. Help us continue to raise the needed funds!
