Lake Clear, New York

7 Acres | February 23, 2004
HSWLT
Owned in Title

A resort village in the Adirondacks, Lake Clear has only several hundred residents at present, but its beauty leaves its future tranquility in question. Anna Liisa Russell’s 6.7-acre property attracts myriad bird species, and the marsh and wooded areas are home to many small mammals, turtles, frogs, toads, and other creatures.

The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust holds the title to this sanctuary.  That means HSWLT is responsible for all property taxes and maintenance costs for the property -- every year, forever.  In addition periodic inspections are made to ensure that the wildlife habitat remains in good condition.  These inspections, and the handling of any damage or destruction, cost heavily in professional staff time and travel expenses.

HSWLT has promised to keep this property as a sanctuary forever -- and that promise will be kept.  If you can help with the cost of stewardship for this and the other properties HSWLT protects, please donate here.

Living with Bats

Bats are fussy about where they live but you can offer them good homes, away from your attic and rafters.
