Champlain Valley land to be preserved

Listen to this story
A property owner between the towns of Essex, NY and Willsboro has donated a conservation easement that will preserve more than 300 acres for forest and farmland in the Champlain Valley.

According to the group Champlain Area Trails, the fields protected under the easement will continue to be farmed.

A forested section of the property will be developed for public hiking and cross-country skiing trails.

The easement was donated by the DeNeale family. It will prevent most development on the land which sits on a section of Lakeshore Road.
