DEC Awards $317,000 Grants to Reduce Flooding and Restore Aquatic Habitats in Hudson River Estuary
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced $316,767 in grant funding for three projects to help reduce localized flooding and restore aquatic habitats in tributary streams of the Hudson River Estuary. Funded projects include Rensselaer County: Poesten Kill Watershed Flood Mitigation ($110,000), Columbia County: Roeliff Jansen Kill Headwaters Road Stream Crossing Management Plan ($104,967), and Ulster County: Town of Esopus Road-Stream Crossing Municipal Management Plan ($101,800). The grants will help communities on the shores of the Hudson River and its tributaries plan for flood mitigation and culvert replacement projects to restore aquatic habitat for American eel and river herring-ocean species that migrate into the estuary and then into streams to spawn or complete their life cycle. Removing these stream barriers also will benefit resident fish such as trout and will help communities with existing and projected impacts of localized flooding by removing constrictions.

The New Rail-Bike Paddle-Cars are Catching Attention
A new business venture, known as Rail Explorers has been catching quite a bit of attention in Ulster County at the Empire State Railway Museum. These pedal powered, motor-assisted cars were welcomed by Ulster County Executive Mike Hein in May at the opening ceremony. County Executive Hein said the attraction is a "game changer" with hopes that it will bring new tourism and revenue to the area. For Memorial Day Weekend 2,000 reservations were made to ride these railroad cars, which completely sold out the new initiative. For an eight mile trip it would cost two passengers $80 and four passengers $150. This is an exciting new opportunity for families to explore what attractions Ulster County and the Hudson Valley have to offer. Learn more here .

Project Spotlight: Kitchawan Bridge Repair
The Teatown Lake Reservation, in partnership with the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, were awarded a Conservancy Trail Grant for the repair of the Kitchawan Bridge over the Big Brook crossing within the Kitchawan Preserve. The prior bridge had vanished over the years, which made crossing a challenge for hikers on the Teatown-Kitchawan Trail. The Teatown-Kitchawan Trail is a 6.5 mile hiking path that links together the following parks and trails: Westchester County's North County Trailway, Kitchawan Preserve, John E. Hand park at Bald Mountain in Yorktown, and the Croton Gorge in the Town of Cortlandt. The trail also connects with the New York State-owned Old Croton Aqueduct Trailway, and with Teatown Lake Reservation -- providing hikers with access to Teatown's additional 15 miles of trails and traverse lands controlled by the NYC Department of Environmental Protection. Instead of a wooden bridge, with the assistance of Jolly Rover Stone Crew, large stones were used to cross the brook. Now hikers have full access to trails throughout the reserve and an easy crossing over the Big Brook.
