Register for Warner Creek Stream Walk

Posted on: August 27th, 2014 by Leslie_Zucker

Join the AWSMP on a walk down Warn­er Creek in the Town of Shan­dak­en on Sun­day, Sep­tem­ber 14 as part of Ulster Coun­ty Creek Week. The walk takes place between 10:00am and 12:00pm. NYCDEP geol­o­gist Danyelle Davis will lead the walk to two loca­tions along Warn­er Creek. The walk begins at the end of Sil­ver Hol­low where we’ll exam­ine a wild, unman­aged sec­tion of stream with both sta­ble and unsta­ble con­di­tions. Top­ics include stream chan­nel dimen­sions, stream types, and the role of geol­o­gy and veg­e­ta­tion in shap­ing the chan­nel. We’ll talk about how pri­vate landown­ers can address stream ero­sion. The sec­ond loca­tion is a short dri­ve down Sil­ver Hol­low Road to the site of a major stream restora­tion project com­plet­ed by the Town of Shan­dak­en and AWSMP in 2013. The project demon­strates sci­ence-based prac­tices in the field of stream restora­tion.

The walk is lim­it­ed to 25 par­tic­i­pants so reserve your space ear­ly. Please come pre­pared with prop­er footwear and cloth­ing that you don’t mind get­ting wet or dirty. It is advis­able to bring sun­screen and insect repel­lant that repels ticks. For the safe­ty of all our par­tic­i­pants, no pets are allowed.
