The Greenburgh Nature Center has received a $10,000 grant extension from the Westchester Community Foundation to continue support of a stormwater management and drinking water protection plan for municipalities in the town of Greenburgh.
The Greenburgh Nature Center initiated the project last year in partnership with Groundwork Hudson Valley/Saw Mill River Coalition and the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County.
In the coming year, the project will focus on:
1. reviewing village codes and ordinances relating to stormwater
2. identifying site design elements and principles to incorporate in the code review process
3. investigating shared stormwater engineering consulting services among the municipalities
4. public education to develop support for a regional watershed perspective
The Greenburgh Nature Center—a 33-acre nature preserve with trails, pond, orchard, and gardens—is located at 99 Dromore Road, Scarsdale. For more information, visit the website www.greenburghnaturecenter.org.
