Waters of the Seneca River and the Erie Canal surround the 3,100 acres of Howland Island. The land was first settled and cleared for farming in the 1800s. Farming continued until the 1920s. The land was purchased as a game refuge in 1932 and became a Civilian Conservation Corps camp between 1933 and 1941. The CCC built 18 earthen dikes to create about 300 acres of water impoundments. The rolling hills and steep drumlins above these impoundments are now home to a second growth mixture of hardwoods such as maple, ash, willow, basswood, black locust, oak, and hickory. The trails are abandoned gravel roads and old service vehicle tracks, now sufficiently overgrown to make pleasant trails. Terrain: Western portion of island is flat, eastern is hilly.
