The Department of Environmental Conservation is adding the land to the existing 286-acre Washington County Grasslands Wildlife Management Area in Fort Edward. The state-owned area is within a 2,000-acre grassland recognized by the National Audubon Society as critical bird habitat. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The area is the largest stretch of open grassland in eastern New York. It's home to 10 of the state's most imperiled grassland birds, including short-eared owls and northern harriers.
