Welcome to the official website of the Town of Taghkanic, New York

The Thursday March 26 Town Board meeting was cancelled. There will be an emergency Town Board meeting today, Friday, March 27 at 11 am.


The Taghkanic Conservation Advisory Committee is sponsoring a guided walk at the New Forge State Forest on April 18, 2015. The walk will be from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM, led by Hudsonia Biologist Gretchen Stevens. We are unfortunately limited to only 20 participants. If you want to join us, please register by email or by telephone with Anna Kadish (larandoc@gmail.com or 518-851-9675). Please register as soon as you can since we need to know how many people and who will join us. Further information will be sent to you by email before the event. We look forward to walking with you!
