High waters threaten woods and wildlife

Listen to this story
Writer and naturalist Ed Kanze has been watching the swollen Saranac River wind closer and closer to his home near Bloomingdale. And he's watching for how the high water and sodden soils are affecting the wildlife he knows so well.

When Martha Foley called yesterday afternoon, the Kanze household was not quite surrounded by water...but close. Their road, the Moose Pond Road, has been under several feet of water since last week.

Neighbors have come together to lend each other a hand where needed, says Kanze. And he said they can't "fuss" too much since their house is high and dry on a knoll.

The water had gone down a little over the weekend, but yesterday the water was rising again.
