The Chip Holt Nature Center is located on the north end of Conesus Lake - 30 miles south of Rochester, New York. We are just off exit 9 on Interstate 390 in Vitale Park on Route 20A (Big Tree Road) in Lakeville. The Town of Livonia owns the building, and programming for schools and the public is directed by the Board of the Chip Holt Nature Center (a not-for-profit organization).

The Center also provides information and programming.
