The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recognized 35 years of stewardship of more than 5,000 acres of protected lands that includes four tidal wetland and upland complexes spanning the middle 100 miles of the tidal Hudson River, with two sites in Rockland County (Piermont Marsh and Iona Island), one in Dutchess County (Tivoli Bays), and one in Columbia County (Stockport Flats). DEC and NOAA officials also dedicated the new Turkey Point Tide Station, established by the reserve and DEC with NOAA support.
