THE LANDSCAPE OF SARATOGA COUNTY
MAPPPING PROJECT AND ANALYSES
Saratoga PLAN’s 2013 landscape study used updated data and modelling for aerial photos, land uses, groundwater recharge, wildlife habitat, natural community integrity, stream quality, agricultural suitability, planned trail networks, predicted development growth patterns, grey infrastructure, conserved lands, and other factors. The maps and analyses will help us better evaluate and rank places and properties for future conservation investments.
The landscape analysis project was funded by the NYS Conservation Partnership Program, the Community Foundation of the Greater Capital Region, NYS Council on the Arts, and the PCLB Foundation.
Kirstin Seleen, of Seleen Associates in Glens Falls, provided outstanding service and expertise as the project consultant.
