National Resources Work Group
In conjunction with the Town's successful application for support from NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program, East Greenbush has convened a Natural Resources Work Group (NRWG) for the purpose of creating a Natural Resources Inventory (NRI) at no cost to the town. The purpose of the NRI is to identify and document naturally occurring resources as well as sites of cultural, historic, recreative, and scenic importance. The NRWG is comprised of volunteers who reside in East Greenbush and have experience and interest in land-use, conservation, and open space. Throughout the process, NRWG will seek public input as well as make all pertinent material available online. The resultant NRI will inform the Town's comprehensive land-use planning and provide a foundation for open space planning and protection, zoning updates, conservation overlay districts, critical environmental areas, and other municipal plans and policies.
The Town of East Greenbush Natural Resources Inventory project is made possible with technical assistance from Cornell University and, with funding from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund through he NYC DEC Hudson River Estuary Program. http://hudson.dnr.cals.cornell.edu.
More information, including calls for public involvement, coming soon.
