The Upper Saranac Foundation (USF) and the Paul Smith’s College Adirondack Watershed Institute (AWI) have announced a public participation meeting on the Upper Saranac Lake watershed management planning effort, scheduled for Thursday, February 18th.
The groups will present the results of the 2020 Upper Saranac Lake public survey and provide opportunities for the community to contribute ideas toward the future management of the watershed.
The Upper Saranac Lake Management Plan builds on decades of monitoring and management activities on the lake and throughout the watershed. The resulting document will define community priorities related to watershed resources and establish the framework for future state funding grant proposals.
Upper Saranac Foundation was awarded a $68,000 grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to develop the plan and has contracted with AWI to assist.
The public meeting will take place online, via Zoom from 7 to 8:30 pm. Registration is required and can be completed online.
