The Friends of Schoharie Crossing are excited to host a follow up presentation on the wildlife monitoring program being conducted by the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy in Montgomery County. Sarah Walsh, the MHLC Associate Director will be in the Enders House on Tuesday, July 26th at 6:30pm to discuss their project and findings.
This program will look at the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy conducts their conservation work in Albany, Schenectady, and Montgomery counties. This presentation will provide a brief overview of MHLC and introduce the audience to their latest partnership with The Nature Conservancy to address wildlife crossings in this region. You will learn about the importance of the Catskill to Adirondack Conservation Corridor and how we are working on the ground to ensure wildlife connectivity in a disconnected world.
Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy has been conserving and stewarding the lands and waters of the Mohawk and Hudson River valleys for the benefit of people and the environment since 1992.
The presentation will be preceded by a brief Friends of Schoharie Crossing meeting. This program and the meeting are free and open to the public.
