LYONSDALE, N.Y. (AP) — The Nature Conservancy has purchased land that includes a two-mile stretch of the Moose River in the southwestern Adirondacks.

The open-space preservation group says its purchase of the 753-acre parcel presented an opportunity to protect a free-flowing river and a large intact forest at the same time.

The conservancy says the tract is along a major corridor for wildlife between the Adirondack Park and the Tug Hill Plateau and will benefit far-ranging animals like moose and bobcat.

The Moose River is also known for spring whitewater rafting along a 13-mile stretch that passes through the parcel now owned by the conservancy.

The Nature Conservancy paid $880,000 and will hold the land for a buyer that will manage it under a perpetual conservation plan.
