We're located just southeast of the Town of Ithaca. The area is made up of beautiful rolling hills, farms, and several small communities. The Town of Caroline is home to more State forest land than any other town in Tompkins County.

The “What’s In Your Watershed?” series is designed to highlight the important water quality issues in each of the major local watersheds where CSI volunteers sample as part of the Synoptic Sampling program. We began the series in December with the Cayuga Inlet, then in February focused on Trumansburg and Taughannock Creeks, monitored by the Streamwatch volunteers.
