 More Land is Purchased

From the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission’s Pine Bush Update, November 1999—State Buys 122 Acres of Pine Bush in Guilderland. In October, Governor Pataki announced the State acquisition of 122 acres of Pine Barrens and ravines for inclusion in the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. The property was purchased from the families of John and Mildred Ford and the Feeney family partnership for just under $1.1 million, using funds from the State Environmental Protection Fund. Last year the Town of Guilderland purchased an adjoining 46-acre Pine Bush parcel from the Mrozek and Malis families. And this fall, The New Hope Gospel and Fellowship Church sold to the Nature Conservancy and the Town of Colonie a 11.4 acre parcel of Pine Bush land immediately adjacent to other protected lands on Kings Road and adjacent to the site of the proposed Pine Bush center.
