Featured Project: Streamside Landowners

Streamside plantings along the Bushkill.


The Catskill Streams Buffer Initiative (CSBI) is one of the primary programs the Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program offers to streamside landowners. CSBI works with landowners to install riparian (streamside) vegetation for bank stabilization to stop erosion and enhance riparian habitat. In 2011 and 2012, CSBI completed 25 projects and revegetated approximately 5,400 feet of stream bank. The Ulster County Soil & Water Conservation District will assist any landowner with stream management questions.

For more information on how to participate in CSBI, please call the Ashokan Stream Program office at (845) 688-3047, or visit the CSBI program website.
