MISSION, HISTORY & BOARD

OUR MISSION

Seneca White Deer Inc. (SWD) is working to preserve the unique wildlife and military history of the former Seneca Army Depot through conservation, ecotourism and economic development.

As a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization, Seneca White Deer, Inc. is run by an unpaid Board of Directors. Our volunteer Board serves to promote the mission of SWD by working with Deer Haven Park and local officials to best preserve the unique wildlife and military history of the site.

HISTORY

Seneca White Deer, Inc. has worked for nearly 20 years to filfill its mission of preserving the wildlife and military history of the former Depot. A key objective has been to share those resources with the public. SWD’s proposals for creating an eco-tourism center at the former Depot won widespread support, but were never realized.

When the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) sought to sell the majority of the Depot property in 2016, SWD was pleased that the IDA required bidders to submit a deer management plan as part of the purchase proposals. SWD had begun working with Seneca Iron Works before it was selected as the successful bidder.

Establishing Deer Haven Park and giving SWD exclusive rights to conduct tours of the property allowed us to accomplish a major goal that we have worked toward since late last century. We look forward to sharing our pride in the former Depot with our visitors.
