Special Topics

MRGP makes available to the general public publications on topics related to wildlife, land and watershed conservation:

  • Eastern CoyoteCoyotes: Changing How We Look at Westchester’s Newest Predators is our 2005 brochure on the coyote; an intelligent, adaptable species which has become abundant in the northeast in the 20th century. This brochure gives biological information on the coyote, historical details of its range, descriptions of ongoing coyote research here at the Gorge, and ways for local residents to avoid unwanted interactions with our new neighbor.
  • Meadow Management: a simple way to protect our watershed describes how local citizens can help preserve native species and their watershed. The typical suburban lawn is a non-native monoculture that requires intense effort and resources to maintain. Fertilizer run-off and erosion further degrade the watershed. Changing your lawn into a high-cut lawn, hay meadow, or naturally-occurring meadow can provide important ecosystem benefits as well as greater aesthetic beauty.
  • Aquifer Report Mianus River Upper Watershed Analysis (8/30/16). Mianus River Gorge retained The Chazen Companies to describe aquifers supporting the upper Mianus River based on readily‐available data, and to offer observations and recommendations that might help preserve water quality and river baseflow through the Mianus River Gorge.


The mission of Mianus River Gorge, an independent, not-for-profit organization, is to preserve, protect and promote appreciation of the natural heritage of the Mianus River watershed through land acquisition and conservation, scientific research and public education throughout the region.
