Nature Conservancy Plans to Buy Island

November 08, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A California conservation group is preparing to buy Staten Island in the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta. The Nature Conservancy is one step away from approval to buy the island for about $31 million.

The group says it wants to save habitat and farmland on the 9,200-acre island, where thousands of birds arrive each winter.

The Department of General Services would need to approve the state grant money that will contribute part of the $31.4-million purchase price.
