Emilia Teasdale is reporting in the Columbia Paper on a recent presentation to the Columbia County Environmental Management Council on a project designed to help communities prepare for the impacts of climate change. Andy Peck of the Nature Conservancy told council members that a coalition of organizations is looking at local projects in the stretch of the Hudson River from the Tappan Zee Bridge to the Federal Dam in Troy as part of the Hudson River Comprehensive Restoration Plan. Peck said the purpose of the initiative is to prepare for uncertain future conditions. Together with Maureen Cunningham from the Hudson River Watershed Alliance, Peck is collecting suggestions for restoration projects communities located along the river. Projects that involve habitat, river education and access issues are of special interest. They have already met with representatives from Hudson and Stuyvesant. The plan is supported by 25 organizations, including Scenic Hudson, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the New York State Department of State. Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
