Westchester County's proposed 2012 budget includes the closing of all six (6) nature centers and the wildlife biology monitoring program. The New York – New Jersey Trail Conference urges residents  to reach out to local legislators through emails, phone calls, and letters, and to attend one of the public budget hearings to let your concerns with these proceedings be known. Further information on the budget hearings, and a directory of legislators can be found here  http://westchesterlegislators.com/

The Northern Westchester County Regional Public Hearing on the budget will take place on Wednesday, November 30 at Somers High School, 120 Primrose Street, Lincolndale.

On Tuesday, December 6, the third and final Regional Public Hearing on the 2012 Budget will take place in the BOL Chambers on the 8th Floor of the Michaelian Office Building in White Plains. Both hearings will start at 7 PM.
