The OVF&HA is one of the few, if not the only non-profit organization in the 4-county area (Chenango, Madison, Cortland and Broome), that takes the long view of promoting a better understanding, appreciation and promotion of the Otselic Valley's existing natural, historic, cultural and social assets, needs and potential. South Otselic's historic recreational fishing, fishing line industry and home of one of NYS's 12 fish hatcheries, represent but one theme that ties this unique region together (and was the genesis for the annual F&HD).

To be a member would mean lending your talents, skills, knowledge and abilities to help further this mission. This could include providing input while attending monthly meetings, helping with the planning and physical coordination of the annual F&HD and other special programs, and representing the Association at neighboring events, all with the overarching goal of enhancing the Valley's quality of life for present and future generations.

All members are invited to attend the monthly meetings. Send us a message, we'd love to hear from you!
