A popular birding trail in the Vischer Ferry Nature and Historic Preserve has recently received recognition by the National Scenic Byway Foundation. The trail was developed through a partnership between the Audubon Society of the Capital Region and the Friends of the Mohawk Towpath Scenic Byway, to highlight the “Important Birding Area” within the popular recreational venue along the Mohawk River.
The National Scenic Byway Foundation announced the winners of its awards program earlier today. Every other year the Foundation recognizes recent projects completed by scenic byway organizations across the the country in eight categories. The Friends of the Mohawk Towpath Byway is awarded an honorable mention in the innovation category.
