Taghkanic Creek Headwaters

The beautiful large forests in Columbia County keep our drinking water clean. With the disruptions of climate change being felt today, now is a good time to plan for forests and water. We’re coordinating a plan to protect the forests that surround the Upper Taghkanic Creek that will consider the needs of people, water, and wildlife.One of the goals of the plan is to keep forests “connected,” which means that large natural areas are free of barriers like roads and development.
