Please join the Commission and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation tonight (June 24) from 6-9PM at the Discovery Center. The meeting will offer an opportunity to hear about the proposed State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP) to conserve 366 Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) in New York state and include two brief presentations about local wildlife conservation. NYSDEC Diversity Biologist, Paul Novak, will discuss regional efforts and our Conservation Director, Neil Gifford, will review the benefits of wildlife habitat management in the Preserve. We hope you will join us and help ensure a strong future for local wildlife.
The draft SWAP is available on the NYSDEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/7179.html
