Working with Cornell University researchers, staff from Cornell Cooperative Extension will be conducting needs assessments with partners, including watershed groups, in targeted communities and providing educational opportunities throughout the region. This effort will evaluate the capacity of communities to respond to floods in a manner that reduces future flooding impacts and ensures the long-term viability of stream systems.
