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!
Friends of Buttonhook Forest Inc is a 501c3 Non-profit Charitable Corporation and is able to take donations.
Visit our Go Fund Me Page to learn more about the Fundraising Campaign underway to raise funds to purchase this land. Please make a donation to help us to buy this land from the Chappaqua Central School District to be held as open space for generations to come.
