Public Meeting about the Hillside Woods Tree Inventory and Management Plan
Thursday, June 7th at 7pm
HASTINGS PUBLIC LIBRARY, ORR ROOM
Join us to discuss the vision of the woods!
Forest regeneration, restoration of native ecology, public safety and enjoyment of the woods.
As part of the NYS DEC Community Forestry Program, LBS Ecological Design will develop a long-term action plan that contains information, recommendations, and strategy to effectively and proactively manage Hillside Park/Woods. The goals of the Forest Management Plan are to regain a healthy forest, including habitat creation, reduced stormwater runoff, improved air quality, recreation, visual screening and reduction of noise pollution, protecting private property values, limiting residential sprawl, public enjoyment of the woods, and to enhance students' educational experience.
LBS Ecological Design specializes in Ecological Planning & Design, for the mutual benefit of humans and the natural environment; we envision humans as active participants in healing the web of life; we employ the self-designing capacity of ecosystems and their complex interwoven relationships; we embrace integrated, adaptive, and collaborative management approaches; we focus on a localized, community scale approach, inspiring awareness, stewardship, and action.
LBS Ecological is working closely with the village staff and public officials of Hastings on Hudson, including the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Conservation Commission, and the Tree Preservation Board.
