A 44-year-old East Greenbush man fell to his death while illegally scaling the rock face at the John Boyd Thacher State Park on Sept. 13.
EAST GREENBUSH— Ronald Gene Czajkowski a religious and creative family man, died on Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, from injuries sustained from a fall at Thacher Park. He was 44.
The first hearing on Thacher's inaugural master plan elicited kudos and concerns, the most troubling from a geologist who said building a visitors' center close to the edge of the escarpment is unwise.
Invasive species can be found throughout Thacher Park and Thompsons Lake, but education campaigns and volunteers have helped to stem their impact on biodiversity.
