SHARE LOCAL NATURE PHOTOS FOR THE KENT NRI

The Kent Conservation Advisory Committee is seeking photos of nature in Kent for the Natural Resources and Biodiversity Inventory

 

Kent New York is a photogenic town full of scenic nature.  The Kent Conservation Advisory Committee (KCAC) is collecting photos of Kent’s special places (lakes, the fire tower, stone chambers, etc.) as well as specific plants and animals for the Natural Resources and Biodiversity Inventory (NRI). The Kent NRI will document key naturally-occurring features of the town (wildlife and plants, geology, soils, streams, wetlands, forests, and scenic and cultural resources).  It will be a resource for planning, land management, and conservation and will be used by multiple boards, committees, and organizations.  The NRI is being developed by Hudsonia Ltd. in concert with local biologists and other volunteers with funding from the NYS DEC Hudson River Estuary program.     

 

You don’t need to be a local resident or professional photographer to contribute.  If you have photos of Kent’s landscapes, wildlife, and/or plants, please share them.

Photos can be uploaded here: Photo link or emailed to climatesmart@townofkentny.gov.

 

Images should be a minimum of 300dpi at 5 x 8 inches (2,400 x 1,600 pixels).  Please include the subject, location and photographer in the file name.

 

If you have questions about photo submissions or any other aspect of the NRI, please contact Anne Campbell at acampbell@townofkentNY.gov or (845) 225-1895
