Great news from one of our partners: This spring, the Indian River Lakes Conservancy in the St. Lawrence Valley bought a parcel of wetlands and shorelines around Grass Lake, using a major grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. (The group now owns more than 1,500 acres.)
North Country Public Radio ran a short segment on the news, talking to founder and treasurer Mark Scarlett.
Listen to it (using NCPR's built-in player) to learn more about the Indian River Lakes Conservancy's work, the landscape it protects and its exciting future in the region.
As NCPR reports, the new land parcel could serve as part of a key wildlife corridor between the Adirondacks, in New York, and Algonquin Park, in Ontario.
