FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2013 file photo, Adrienne Esposito, director of Citizens Campaign for the Environment, walks to the top of an old battery, previously used for defense, on Plum Island in New York. Environmental groups on both sides of Long Island Sound have for several years called for the property to be kept as a nature preserve, but the government hopes to sell the island using proceeds from the sale to defray the costs of moving its research operations on the island to a new laboratory at Kansas State University.
