LONG LAKE, N.Y. (WCAX) - A private land parcel in the heart of the Adirondack Park is now up for sale.

According to the executive director of Protect the Adirondacks, Whitney Park is 36,000 acres, has 22 lakes and ponds and more than 100 miles of undeveloped shoreline.

The group’s Peter Bauer says says the family of Mary Lou Whitney, who recently died, is asking for $180 million for the land.

New York purchased 15,000 acres of the estate back in 1997 for conservation. Bauer is calling on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to make sure the remaining land is a protected part of the Adirondack’s future.

A Department of Environmental Conservation spokesperson said the agency will work with the family if they reach out with any interest in selling to the state.
