Ulster County has a rich diversity of forests and wetlands, which provide wildlife habitat, clean drinking water, recreational opportunities, flood control, and many other benefits to our communities. Local governments and landowners play an important role in sustaining these resources. Join us for an educational opportunity to learn about forests and wetlands in Ulster County, strategies for land use and stewardship planning, and examples of how local municipalities are conserving these resources for future generations, including several initiatives underway in Rondout Valley communities. This event is open to the public and self-certification forms for 2.5 hours of municipal training credit will be available for members of local boards. Light refreshments will be served.
This program is provided in partnership with the NYS Water Resources Institute, Cornell University and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's Hudson River Estuary Program, with support from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund.
