Inspired by a late summer morning on Elk Lake in North Hudson, NY, where one of the very first-ever conservation easements in New York State was established.

Generations of private land conservation and stewardship helps protect the lands and waters around Elk Lake. @nature_ny works provides assistance to individual land owners and @NYSDEC to help make sure that this Adirondack landscape will there for the future generations to enjoy.

This concludes our summer tour through the #Adirondacks. For the last week, we will visit some iconic spots in all their Autumn glory!‬
