New Lebanon studying for conservation

Jun 29, 2016 12:03 am
Ellyen Gaydos in The Columbia Paper reports that New Lebanon listened to conservation ideas from Hudsonia biologist Gretchen Stevens who, thanks to a grant from the Hudson River Estuary Program, is studying local waters. Stevens, with the town Conservation Advisory Council, has been working with Darrow School students, gathering data on small streams, vernal pools, and old forests, looking for rare plants, animals, and habitats in New Lebanon. “Limestone throughout much of the town can create very interesting and unusual habitats,” Stevens said, noting local carnivorous plants, such as blue cohosh and toothwort, which support the larvae of the Virginia white butterfly. Stevens is available at the Sundays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., at the New Lebanon farmers Market at Windswept Farm, 36 Old Route 20, New Lebanon. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
