Land deals reshape Adirondack Park & debate

Listen to this story
Over the last decade, pro-environment groups and state officials have blocked development on more than 700,000 acres of privately-owned timberland in the Adirondack Park. In a remarkably short time, the Champion, IP, Domtar, and Finch-Pruyn deals, along with dozens of smaller transactions, have changed the Park's environmental and economic landscape. In the coming months, North Country Public Radio will air an occasional series looking at how these easements are affecting Adirondack communities, ecosystems, and the political debate over the Park's future. To open the conversation, Brian Mann spoke with Phil Brown, the managing editor of the Adirondack Explorer, at the magazine's office in Saranac Lake. They began by talking about the recent deal between Finch-Pruyn and the Adirondack Nature Conservancy.
