New York State has added more than 1,350 acres to its Wildlife Management Area (WMA) system in Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, and Yates counties.


The newly acquired land includes 193.8 acres at Stid Hill in Bristol, 708.7 acres at Honeoye Inlet in Ontario and Livingston counties, 299.3 acres of High Tor in Naples, 96.2 acres of Junius Ponds in Junius, and 56.5 acres of Lake Shore Marshes in Wolcott.

These acquisitions are part of nearly 8,000 acres added statewide using federal grant funding.
