Mid-Hudson News reports that New York's Department of Environmental Conservation and the Open Space Institute announced on July 26 the acquisition of 261 acres adjacent to the Catskill Forest Preserve’s Sundown Wild Forest. The property along the east side of South Mountain in the Town of Olive was purchased by the Open Space Institute and with a $665,500 grant from the state’s Environmental Protection Fund. The Open Space Institute initially bought the property in 2019 from Dr. Sam and Delia Adams, whose family owned the land since the Hardenbergh Patent of the 1700s. The Sundown Wild Forest covers 30,100 acres and includes ten mountains over 2,000 feet tall. Read more about this story at Mid-Hudson News.
