SCALE Pilot Kicks Off

In May, we kicked off lake sampling efforts as part of the pilot Survey of Climate Change in Adirondack Lake Ecosystems (SCALE). Over the coming few weeks, we and our partners will be visiting 40 lakes to continue testing field methods and collecting samples.

2023 Ride For The River

Join us on July 16th for our eleventh annual Ride for the River. This family-friendly fundraising bike ride is a celebration of AsRA, the Ausable River, and the communities surrounding it.

Finding The Fish

Since 2017, our biodiverse habitats team has been hard at work traversing the Ausable watershed collecting samples for our environmental DNA (eDNA) work. Learn more about this work and how it is helping us to understand, predict, and conserve the future of the brook trout of our Ausable mountain streams.

Our mission — is to help communities protect our streams and lakes.

East Branch Restoration Program Continues with Project Area 2 in Upper Jay
This summer, the Ausable River Association (AsRA) will undertake the second phase of construction in its East Branch Restoration Program with Project Area 2 in Upper Jay. This comprehensive program, developed in 2019 with funding from the Governor’s Office for Storm Recovery (now the Office of Resilient Homes and Communities), identifies 13 sites in the Town of Jay in need of restoration. Completing these river restoration projects will improve flood resilience, protect communities and infrastructure, and restore habitat for the food web that supports our native brook trout.

A Puddle Teeming with Life
On a rainy spring night, have you ever noticed a lot of frogs or salamanders on the road and wondered why they are there? These amphibians aren't just out enjoying the night. They are looking for somewhere to mate. While some amphibians stay in or close to water, others spend the majority of their time in forests, but they still need waterbodies for breeding. When spring comes, many make the journey to streams, ponds, and adjacent wetlands, while others venture to more isolated vernal pools to mate. Vernal pools may be small and dry out during the year, but their ecosystems are complex.
