Habitat and Water Resource Assessment Short Course

The Hudson River Estuary Program is excited to announce a Habitat and Water Resource Assessment Short Course in partnership with Hudsonia Ltd., to be held September 21-23 in Voorheesville, NY (Albany County). The course is designed especially for municipal officials, planners, and land trust staff to help land use decision-makers achieve more ecologically-sound planning outcomes. Exercises involving map analysis, site plan review, and field visits will supplement lectures on habitats of the Hudson Valley, conservation principles, and land-use planning tools. Participants will receive practical information and guidance that can be applied immediately to landscape analysis, natural resource inventory, open space planning, and environmental reviews.
