Join our Scenic Resources Mapping Project!

Do you enjoy hiking? Are you interested in photography? We need YOUR HELP!

With the support of the Hudson River Valley Greenway, Winnakee is teaming up with the Department of Environmental Conservation to map scenic views across northern Dutchess County.  The purpose of the project is to identify areas that northern Dutchess communities value for their scenic qualities. The identified locations will help improve how scenic resources are incorporated into local and regional planning.

The project requires photos taken at scenic locations, similar to the photo displayed above. We must know the location where the photo was taken. Please be as specific as possible. GPS coordinates are ideal and can be captured using your smart phone.

We are looking for photos in all seasons, taken within the last three years. Northern Dutchess includes the municipalities of Red Hook, Milan, Pine Plains, North East, Amenia, Stanford, Clinton, Rhinebeck, and Hyde Park.

Please send all photos to with the location and your full name if you wish to be credited.

All photo submissions are due by Friday June 24th!
