Finch Lands Update
By Dan Ladd
Land acquisitions in the Adirondacks, and anywhere for that matter, are always controversial. I’ve been following the developments of the state’s acquisition of the former Finch, Pruyn lands in the central Adirondacks since 2007. If you are not familiar with this topic, then let me refresh your memory. In June of 2007, Finch, Pruyn Inc., a timber company based in Glens Falls, New York, sold 161,000 acres of Adirondack timberland to the Adirondack chapter of The Nature Conservancy (TNC). By early 2008, TNC had worked out details with the state to sell portions of the land in fee purchase for inclusion in the Adirondack Forest Preserve.

The fallen leaves that line the old log road give a soft crunch under the step of the hunter. The hunter pauses to enjoy the sights and smells in the crisp mountain air of his favorite time of the year. As he stops near a briar patch, there is a sound like a muffled explosion followed by the rapid whir of wings as a partridge erupts in a twisting flight towards the safety of a nearby evergreen patch.
