    The Kinderhook, Stockport and Claverack Creeks are a vital resource to our area. They will continue to be beautiful, healthy and fun as long as they stay clean. You can help!

    Check out our News Page for community events to get engaged with our watershed.


    Watch out for these potential invaders. Do your part to stop their spread into the Stockport Watershed.

    Recent research indicates Didymosphenia geminata (aka "Didymo" or "Rock Snot") is an algae that may be native to North America and the recent blooms are due to changes in the environment.   New York State DEC still recommends cleaning, draining, drying waders and equipment to ensure that gear is free of any potential invasive species or contaminants.

    Here are some links to fact sheets describing what you can do to help your watershed. Many thanks to the Lake George Waterkeeper/Fund for Lake George for their help in developing these fact sheets.
