RARE SANDSTONE PLAIN PUT INTO A PROTECTIVE ACCORD

A geographically rare sandstone plain in northern New York was entered into a protective agreement Wednesday, officials said.

The William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute has entered a conservancy agreement for the 2,692-acre Altona Flat Rock plain in Clinton County, said Nancy Wilson, development coordinator for the Adirondack Nature Conservancy.

The sandstone barrens were formed about 10,000 years ago during the last Ice Age and are considered uncommon.
