Spring is popping out all over the Byway: service berry, shad blow, fiddle heads, trillium, skunk cabbage, and the first leaves of the red maple. It will not be long before the apple trees are in their full glory. Its a beautiful time to visit the Byway.
We also are working on a new regional marketing initiative with the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County. Our new partner will be helpful in exploring opportunities to connect with local businesses that serve both our residents and our visitors whether they be from the region or from around the world. We welcome the Chamber’s help in implementing the ideas in our business plan and the basic principals that are laid out in our Corridor Management Plan. We look forward to a strong working relationship with the Chamber.
Also, if you haven’t noticed, the flow in the Mohawk River is noticeable under our bridges, over the Cohoes Falls and anywhere else the Byway comes close to our “waterway west”. The high water levels are an important consideration when getting out to experience our Byway features, particularly in areas that are prone to flooding.
