WoodsWalk - at the Schenectady Woodlawn Preserve

Date: Friday June 21st

Time: 10am- 12pm.

Place: 1 Gifford Road, Schenectady, NY.

In coordination with DEC Beaver Management Specialist, Joe Nelson, the Friends of the Woodlawn Preserve, and NYFOA CDC, the Schenectady Woodlawn Preserve will hold a WoodsWalk at 1 Gifford Road, Schenectady, NY.

This WoodsWalk will observe beaver activity and its relationship to vegetation and its impacts on waterways, and its historical role as an ecosystem engineer. The SWP is exploring beaver management options to protect trails, recreation, and the various flood control structures, located in the 100+ acre remnant Pine Bush ecosystem. Joe, Beaver Management Specialist for DEC Region #4, in Rotterdam, NY, will lead the discussion on recent beaver activity and management options, for the city of Schenectady’s Van De Loo Pond, which is also a several acre flood control/retention pond, to relieve homes in Woodlawn from high water table.

Jeff Kehoe, is a neighbor and a steward of the Woodlawn Preserve. He will discuss the site’s management history, and management options for the future of the site. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff at 518-596-9040.
