The con­ser­va­tion ini­tia­tive is a joint ef­fort by Scenic Hud­son and the Greene Land Trust.

TOWN OF CATSKILL >> Scenic Hud­son and the Greene Land Trust have joined to pro­tect 149 acres along the Catskill Creek.

The ar­range­ment is in­tended to pro­vide out­door recre­ation and help the com­mu­nity mit­i­gate flood­ing, the groups said.

The Greene Land Trust will man­age the land ac­quired as part of Scenic Hud­son’s “Save the Land That Mat­ters Most” cam­paign.

The prop­erty, just up­stream from the vil­lage of Catskill, in­cludes more than 2 miles of shore­line on Catskill Creek, a Hud­son River trib­u­tary.

Scenic Hud­son ac­quired 144 of the acres. A neigh­bor­ing landowner do­nated a con­ser­va­tion ease­ment of 5 ad­ja­cent acres to the Greene Land Trust.

Plans for the prop­erty in­clude de­vel­op­ing marked walk­ing paths that will con­nect visi­tors to a meadow and the creek’s shore­line.
