Stone Valley Cooperative Recreation Area (SVCRA)

During 2013 the 24-year old management plan for the Stone Valley Cooperative Recreation Area was reviewed by a partnership of property owners, volunteer stewards and stakeholder groups. In the revised agreement being finalized the partners are focusing maintenance and development on six outcomes: Healthy and abundant natural resources for timber, hydropower and recreation; Public access for allowed activities; High scenic values of forested landscape and river flow; Harmony among users and owners; Biological diversity, with emphasis on native species; and Interpretation and protection of geologic and historic features. The property owners work with volunteer stewards including the Laurentian Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club and the St. Lawrence County Mountain Bike Association. Information about the SVCRA and the management agreement are available on the Laurentian Chapter’s website (http://adklaurentian.org/).
