We've just received some outstanding news!

The Federal Natural Resource Trustees charged with stewardship of the Hudson River's damaged natural resources have unequivocally called on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to halt GE's decommissioning of its cleanup facilities until the EPA conducts a five-year technical review of the company's cleanup of toxic PCBs. EPA Regional Administrator Judith Enck has explicitly requested such a letter from the Trustees (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service) prior to taking any action. Now that they have complied, it’s time for her to step up and halt GE from prematurely dismantling its operations—preventing the company from walking away from a job that's far from complete.

Scenic Hudson is grateful to U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson for his swift action and outreach to the Federal Trustees. We join the Congressman, 141 New York State Assembly members, 27 New York Senators and over 80 municipalities in calling for further cleanup of the Hudson—to protect the health of the river and the people of New York. I hope you can join me this Thursday at the People’s Protest and Press Conference, where we’ll request two more years of dredging and call on Gov. Cuomo and the EPA to heed the trustees' call and stop GE from demobilizing its cleanup facilities before it’s too late.

Thanks for all that you do,

Ned Sullivan

Marine Park Trail Restoration and

Community Engagement Project

The Natural Areas Conservancy and The Nature Conservancy invite you to attend a meeting Monday, September 21 to discuss trail restoration opportunities in Marine Park, Brooklyn’s largest park. We are working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and in partnership with the Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy.

The meeting will be at P.S. 277, 2529 Gerritsen Avenue, Brooklyn, from 7 to 8:30 pm.

Project goals include making the park trails easier to navigate and better conserving its natural history. To improve park user’s experience in the maritime forest (one of only two in New York City) along the park’s western edge, we are planning to establish a marked loop trail. Most of the new trail will consist of existing paths, and some parts will be restored to be natural habitats. Research from the Natural Areas Conservancy’s recent biodiversity study of New York City’s parks will be used to guide this ecological restoration.

Save the Date: NYC Parks’ citywide stewardship day is on October 24. The Natural Areas Conservancy and friends will be volunteering in Marine Park, 9 am – 1 pm. To sign up and see more details, visit NYC Parks Stewardship website.
