DEC Lands - ESRI shapefile Lands under the care, custody and control of DEC, including Wildlife Management areas, Unique Areas, State Forests, and Forest Preserve. This dataset is a work in progress. Information on state owned recreation land boundaries is available from a number of sources that do not necessarily agree. Reconciliation of boundary discrepancies is underway, but the process is slow. DEC's Division of Lands and Forests would appreciate reliable information on boundary corrections.
