ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The Nature Conservancy has acquired 107 acres to add to a preserve near Canandaigua Lake in western New York.
The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle (http://on.rocne.ws/1gN2DQE ) reports that the central and western New York chapter of the conservancy expects to dedicate the new acreage on Monday.
It will become part of the West Hill Preserve, which is open to the public for hiking. With the addition, the preserve in the Ontario County town of Naples will total 550 acres.
The acquisition was made possible by a grant from TD Bank, which has been reducing its use of paper and working with the Nature Conservancy to protect forests.
