    Leon M. Steves Big Bay Preserve 

The land for the Leon M. Steves Big Bay Preserve was donated by the Open Space Institute in 2015. 
There is more than 2,500 feet of shorefront on the Hudson River and over 3,000 feet of shorefront along Clendon Brook. The land abuts a 38 acre parcel to the east, owned by the Town of Queensbury.
