Extreme Storm Resiliency.
After observing the impacts of Irene, Lee, and other storms to their property, a landowner engaged One Nature last spring to develop a master plan for a 70-acre agricultural property that would make it both more resilient and beautiful. After a comprehensive planning and design process this past summer and fall, we started construction implementation of the project to protect and improve the Otsego County, NY property from future major storm events. Phase one included bioengineering a half mile of riverfront, earth moving, upgrading existing drainage, and the expansion of an old agricultural pond. This Spring we will install several acres of native plants, a trail system, gathering space, habitat potholes, and new hillside orchard.
