SCHOHARIE AREA WILD (SAW) INITIATIVE
Get out of the office and be a steward for Schoharie’s streams. Schoharie Area Wild is a coalition of volunteers organized through SALT that is focused on mitigation of flood risk and long-term sustainability of communities in the Schoharie Valley Region. Through good stewardship and community collaboration we can enjoy our natural resources as well as build a healthy outdoor recreation and tourism market for the area.
Schoharie County’s land is 90% forest and agricultural use. Plan and coordinate volunteer efforts to survey and clean up the Schoharie Creek and its tributaries. This committees actions influence efforts in the environment, parks and recreation, and tourism.
A focal part of the SAW coalition is the Schoharie Creek Trail Project.
The Next Step is the Schoharie Creek Trail Feasibility Study to determine the feasibility of a non-motorized recreational trail beginning at the Blenheim Town Hall in North Blenheim and continuing along the Schoharie Creek waterfront, abandoned railway bed stretches and parallel roads through the Towns of Blenheim, Fulton, Middleburgh, Schoharie, and Esperance via the Villages of Middleburgh and Schoharie and the hamlets of Breakabeen and Central Bridge, ending in the Village of Esperance, approximately 38 miles.
