Albany, local group receive $8,275 grant award

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—The Hudson River Valley Greenway announced it awarded the city of Albany, in partnership with the Buckingham Pond Conservancy, a $8, 275 grant.

The Greenway board awarded a total of $27, 800 for projects throughout the Hudson Valley region.

The Buckingham Pong Conservancy will conduct a natural resource inventory to assess the biological integrity of the pond’s health. The pond serves as green infrastructure for storm water management.

“Natural resource inventories serve as an important tool to better understand the environmental state of a particular area. Buckingham Pond is an asset for the City and by better understanding its health, its value to the community will be enhanced,” said Mark Castiglione, Acting Executive Director of the Hudson River Valley Greenway.

“Buckingham Pond is a recreational asset for the City of Albany,” said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan.
