PRFA Display on Impact of Land Acquisition on Hunting Camps and Sportsmen's Access Scheduled for February 28 NEACA Arms Collectors Show at Holiday Inn, Lake George
The Property Rights Foundation of America will host an exhibit at the NEACA Arms Fair and Militaria Exposition on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at the Holiday Inn at Lake George. The display features original PRFA photos and publications about the threat that land acquisition poses to hunting access and the existence of hunting camps on leases in the historic Adirondack timberlands and the practical effort we are making to counter the threat.
New handouts include our newsletter with the illustrated story of hunting camps threatened by proposed state acquisition of the former Finch Pruyn lands, andjust published in Januarya popular new full color postcard, "Welcome to the Adirondack 'Park,'" which carries a not-very-subtle message.
The illustrated report of PRFA's important conference on the "Adirondack Park: The Idea, The Experience, The Future," held in October 2009, will be available free of charge, among many other publications related to the theme of the exhibit.
The display features lots of original photos, including documentation of the surprisingly successful ten-year effort, begun by PRFA, to save 300 hunting camps on the 139,000-acre Champion International acquisition in St. Lawrence and Franklin Counties.
We are having an impact! In November the DEC issued a revised conservation easement to allow the remaining 220 hunting camps to stay "in perpetuity" on leases on the Champion lands.
