ULSTER PARK (Ulster County)—The public is invited to join a hike through a forested area along the Hudson River to learn about and document the status of specific plants that can offer scientists clues about how the species are being impacted by a changing climate in the Hudson Valley. Participants also will have an opportunity to wade into the Hudson to help catch fish using large nets. After being identified and classified so information about the catch can assist scientists, the fish will be released.
HUDSON VALLEY, N.Y.—Adding to the expertise represented by the members of its Board of Directors, Scenic Hudson has announced that Jesse B. Clinton and Kim A. Taylor are the organization’s newest board members.
Public encouraged to learn, connect and act at evening meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 22, in Mechanicville
We wrapped up a great week of “7 Minute Clean Ups" along the Fall Kill Creek in Poughkeepsie in late July. It was wonderful to see so many people taking pride in our community—and helping to restore this important Hudson River tributary that runs right through the heart of the city. 36 volunteers joined 23 Scenic Hudson staff members to remove 1,450 Lbs. of trash from the creek, including 17 tires, four shopping cars, six bikes, two computers and a bowling ball!
