Natural Resources Inventory

The Natural Resources Inventory is a collaboration between the City of Rensselaer, the Rensselaer County Land Trust, and the Cornell Cooperative Extension through the DEC. The goal of the Natural Resources Inventory is to collect, visualize, and interpret the City's natural resources in order to provide a basis for sustainability and resiliency to be heavily incorporated into Rensselaer's long term planning.

The Natural Resources Inventory is anticipated to be complete in spring of 2021.

Public participation will be necessary for this process! Please join the Planning Department to learn
