“Evaluating Ulster County’s Green Infrastructure Landscape”
Green infrastructure are the natural landscape features such as forests, wetlands and streams, or agricultural soils that provide clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation and food or forestry. Participants at the event learned about Ulster County’s natural assets: what they are, where they are and how can their conservation can create vibrant environments and economies. An interactive session followed where participants provided input and local knowledge on the various ‘themed’ maps that were developed and can be seen in the powerpoint presentation.
This project is sponsored by the Ulster County Planning and Dept of Environment, the Green Infrastructure Center and the NYS DEC, and funded by U.S Environmental Protection Agency, under a contract to the Cadmus Group.
