Lake George: State Protects 1300 Acres

Listen to this story
New York state will pay roughly 900 thousand dollars to preserve a big chunk of open space in the Lake George basin. The deal announced Tuesday will protect thirteen hundred acres around Northwest Bay, in the town of Bolton. The land is adjacent to the Pharoah Lake Wilderness Area. There are already three miles of hiking trails on the property, including a path to Pole Hill Pond, a pristine spring-fed lake. Gov. George Patki said the conservation effort would improve the health of the Lake George eco-system. The deal was brokered by the Lake George Land Conservancy. Brian Mann spoke with Lynn Schuman, the Conservancy's executive director.
