GREENE CO., N.Y. — Members of the public are invited to an event to learn how to use a new online tool — the first-ever inventory of the natural resources of Greene County. This workshop session is being hosted by Greene Land Trust, Hudsonia, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties, the organizations that developed the Inventory. The workshop will provide information on how property owners and others can access and use the Inventory to manage their own property or understand natural resource issues in their communities.
The Inventory maps and describes Greene County’s important natural resources as well as scenic and outdoor recreation areas. The information is intended as a general reference for use by landowners, towns, villages, conservation organizations, and others involved in local land use, land management, or conservation. It can help users identify valuable natural resources in or near an area, understand the importance of those resources to residents and the general environment, and inform planning, conservation, and management activities.
The session will be held on Wednesday, November 6 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Agroforestry Resource Center, 6055 Route 23, in Acra. There is no cost for participation, but registration is required. To register, go to the Greene County Natural Resources Inventory event page at CceColumbiaGreene.org/Events or call 518-622-9820 x100.
The Inventory was created by the Greene Land Trust, Hudsonia Ltd, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia & Greene Counties with funding from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund through the DEC Hudson River Estuary Program.
