Our 
Vision

The mission of the Waterfall Unity Alliance is to protect Ioskóhare (the Schoharie Valley) and all Earth, build alliances across movements & cultures, and help create solutions to the existential challenges of our time. 

 

We are currently mapping the BioRegion of Ioskóhare and exploring what a Waterfall Center of Bioregional Learning would look like.   The Center would serve as a community hub to facilitate, convene and  educate. Our first task is to map the watersheds of the local creeks and to support and catalyze the definition and parameters of the Ioskóhare BioRegion including; defining regional boundaries based on ecology, watershed data, geologic features, culture, community and local economies.

RESEARCH

We have begun our own research on what constitutes a BioRegion, mapping our watersheds, understanding our geologic features that make up our valley, culture and economy and the history the land has witnessed throughout ages and eons.  Click the link below to see what we have begun mapping to better understand the elements that can come together to define what our BioRegion can encompass.  This is ever evolving as we learn more and community begins to form and flourish around this work.

BIOREGION QUESTIONNAIRE

If you live in the Schoharie Valley, County or immediate surrounding areas, we would love to hear from you and learn more about what you feel is important to include for considerations for establishing a BioRegion for our area. 

We have set up this questionnaire to start to learn more about our community and the collective understanding of the unique ecology of our region.  This is just a sampling of questions to start the thinking around this concept and to learn more about how we connect to the Schoharie Valley.  Feel free to fill out as much or as little as you'd like. 

 

If you are interested in learning more, offering expertise or participating in this project - please include your contact information at the bottom of the form so we can be sure to add you to our mailing list for updates on community gatherings, new information and opportunities surrounding this project. Nia:wen!

PARTICIPATION

Please fill out the following fields if you would like to stay up to date and participate in future events surrounding this project as we continue to learn, grow and work towards establishing a BioRegional Learning Center in the Schoharie Valley.

KNOWING THE LAND

BioRegionalism is strongly based on PLACE and RELATIONSHIPS. An important element of establishing and stewarding a BioRegion is developing a deeper understanding of YOUR PLACE and YOUR RELATIONSHIP to PLACE. Take some time to look over these questions. How familiar are you with where you call home?

Thank you for your insight and interest in this project!
