Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the acquisition of Marion River Carry, a 296 acre property in the Adirondacks. Coinciding with the 125th anniversary of the Adirondack Park, Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos signed ceremonial maps to resolve more than a century of differences between the state and Raquette Lake occupants located on 216 parcels within Township 40. As part of the resolution, the state acquired the property from Open Space Institute, which will now be added to the Adirondack Forest Preserve and made open to the public.
