More protection for tidal wetland on Hudson River

CATSKILL – Scenic Hudson has announced the protection of 132 acres adjacent to its RamsHorn-Livingston Sanctuary. The acquisition adds to the 480-acre natural preserve offering two miles of trails that Scenic Hudson co-owns with Audubon New York and provides opportunities for hikers and paddlers to explore and observe wildlife.

The newly protects property features more than 3,400 feet along the estuary shore, including a significant portion of RamsHorn Marsh, which provides habitat for American eel, American shad, smallmouth and largemouth bass, as well as many amphibian, reptile and plant species.

It also furnishes vital resting and feeding habitat for large concentrations of waterfowl during their fall and spring migrations, and is an important waterfowl wintering area.
