Meeting Reminder for Monday

On Monday, April 18, specialists from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's Hudson River Estuary Program will present existing data on the condition of natural habitats, the challenges posed by severe climate events, and the state of our wetlands, streams, and water systems. These findings will be the starting point for the Conservation Advisory Council's multi-year inventory of the city's open spaces and natural resources. The presentation takes places at 6:30 p.m. at the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street.

  1. I asked the author of the Estuary Program's new "habitat summary" for Hudson if she'd let me see her paper in draft form (I've known her from past projects).

    It's beautiful!!

    It is thoroughly researched and nicely laid out, and it is also flawless.

    A lot can go wrong gathering every record in the State's collection which relates to a particular place. Generally speaking, there's a lot of bad data knocking around in those databases which is next to impossible to get rid of.

    This author managed to create a document which is without blemish. I can't sing its praises enough.

    The habitat summary will serve us for years to come.
