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.
