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


The Taghkanic Conservation Advisory Committee is sponsoring a guided walk at the New Forge State Forest on Saturday, 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!
