Hope Falls, New York

152 Acres | December 9, 1996
HSWLT
Owned in Title

This 152-acre sanctuary in Hope Falls, New York, nestles within the Adirondack State Park, which is made up of six million acres of both state-owned and privately owned land. Mostly forested, the property has two creeks and harbors a wide array of wildlife, including white-tailed deer, black bear, coyotes, red and grey foxes, raccoons, skunks, fisher, beaver, mink, river otters, woodchucks, long-tailed weasel, ermine, porcupine, snowshoe hare, cottontail rabbits, red and black squirrels, chipmunks, and numerous songbirds.

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.

Many assume that bears are exclusively meat eaters while, in fact, plant foods make up the bulk of their diet.
