Flora and Ecology of Hudson Valley Rocky Summits

Project Sponsor: New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation
End Date: March 31, 2017


The goal of this project was to better understand the role of fire in the maintenance of the unique rocky summit ecosystems in the Taconic and Palisades Regions. We inventoried the current flora at both burned and unburned sites, with an emphasis on potential rare plant species. Data collected was analyzed and summarized in a final report with recommendations that can be used to aid future management and land use decisions in the Parks.
