The Wolf Conservation Center today released a statement about a Westchester Land Trust lawsuit that seeks to stop the wolf center’s plans to create a fenced-in wolf habitat on 8 acres of the Leon Levy Preserve in Lewisboro.
“We are dismayed and disappointed that the WLT has now taken the view that our plans are somehow at odds with the conservation easement they hold on the preserve,” Martha Handler, the Wolf Conservation Center board president said in the statement. “But given the various rights and obligations set forth in that easement itself, suffice it to say that the WCC could not disagree more!”
The center wants to create the enclosure as part of its plans to create a new education center near the intersection of Routes 35 and 123.
