Friends of the Great Swamp will be hosting a celebration on Friday, December 6, 2013, at the public announcement of the expansion of New York State’s Cranberry Mountain Wildlife Management Area in Patterson.
With the acquisition of this 362-acre property known as South Hollow, the Cranberry Mountain Wildlife Management Area has expanded by a third. South Hollow features forested wetlands and a significant portion of Haviland Hollow Brook, a pristine trout stream. The brook connects with The Great Swamp’s Croton River.
The Trust for Public Land and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the family of the late Gerald Blumberg, a long-time resident of the Hudson River Valley, to complete the conservation transaction.
Place: Claire’s Garden Center, 210 County Road 68 (Haviland Hollow Road), Patterson, NY
