CLC Plan for Furgary Site and North Bay

This is page 12 of the current Columbia Land Conservancy magazine, which I happened upon earlier this week at the information kiosk at High Falls in Philmont.
The red text at the top of the page reads: "As part of the CLC plan, interpretive programs would educate visitors about the varied ecosystems and history of the area...."
Oh, the irony---tearing down the 150 year old fishing/boating village to teach history --- and placing "Kayak/Canoe access" there, even though we already have a Kayak/Canoe launch at Hudson's waterfront Park. (Oh and let's not forget all the Visitor Parking, for the people who want to hike on the old landfill mound.)
The petition is here. My photos of the Boat Club are here. The boat club will welcome visitors this Saturday from 1-6 pm. Have a safe and Happy Fourth of July.

  1. Oh dear ... what are people THINKING??? I would think the fishing/boating village IS history! Yikes.

    I felt the same when our local nature conservation group tore out about 20 50-year old fir trees and took out all the native underbrush on about 30 acres of pristine forest ... so they could plant oak trees and "native" plants. In rows.

    Things that make you go Huh???
