|Schoharie Watershed Month|
Greene County Soil & Water Conservation District is hosting its second annual celebration of everything water. All month long, you're invited to workshops, seminars and stream clean-ups
throughout the Hunter-Tannersville area. Thanks to funding from DEP and a Stream Management Implementation Grant, the Council is again sponsoring the free environmental film series May 20-22.
Films include What's On Your Plate?, Vanishing of the Bees, Reclaiming Our Water,
and The Greenhorns.
|A Picnic & A Fountain
After two years of renovations, the Ashokan Reservoir fountains are flowing again.
On Mother's Day, the DEP showcased its latest rehabilitation work on an aging water infrastructure by replacing two 105-year-old values. The fountain area is adjacent to the Ashokan Dam Public Access Area that provides 2.5 miles of scenic walkways. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenery.
Congrats: Laura O'Donohue of Snow Hill Farm, North Salem, joined the board of NOFA-NY
