The August 2018 issue of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s bimonthly magazine, Conservationist, includes a story by Tug Hill Commission Executive Director Katie Malinowski about Tug Hill. Featuring community-led conservation in the East Branch of Fish Creek and Salmon River watersheds, the article also describes the Tug Hill region and the work of the commission. The commission, created by New York State legislation in 1972 with the first meeting held in April of 1973, is unique in its grassroots approach that uses collaboration and consensus-building to achieve shared goals.
