Follensby Pond parcel in Adks purchased by Nature Conservancy

The Adirondack Nature Conservancy announced today that it has purchased 14,600 acres near Tupper Lake. The acreage includes the famous Follensby Pond, where Ralph Waldo Emerson, James Russell Lowell, and Louis Agassiz held their famous "Philosopher's Camp."

The 1,000-acre pond has been viewed by environmentalists and recreation enthusiasts as one of the last remaining gems that they hoped to preserve. For more on the deal, visit the Nature Conservancy's website.
