OSI Protects Saratoga County Green Corridor

PALMERTOWN — The Open Space Institute (OSI) today announced the acquisition of a property in the Town of Greenfield that is critical to the creation of a 13-mile recreational green corridor in the southern portion of the Palmertown Range.

The newly protected 84-acre “Greentree Lake Addition” property features woodlands, wetlands, and an open pond, and has significant value for habitat protection. Adjacent to OSI’s previous “Greentree Lake” acquisition, the two properties will now establish 350 acres of protected land connected to Lincoln Mountain State Forest and have the potential to serve as a new, southern access point for the forest.

The Greentree Lake Addition property is a key linkage in the center of the Southern Palmertown Range recreational corridor, a proposed 13-mile trail that will ultimately connect Moreau Lake and Saratoga Spa State Parks. OSI’s acquisition presents one of the only opportunities to connect the recreation corridor through a developed area and will eventually provide community access to the Palmertown Range recreational corridor.
