Building on New York’s long-standing tradition of environmental stewardship, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (Trail Conference) have formed the Catskill Conservation Corps, a partnership to provide enhanced opportunities to volunteer on projects that protect natural resources  and enhance outdoor recreation opportunities in the Catskill Mountains Region.

Under a contract with the DEC, the Trail Conference recruits and supervises volunteers to  perform various stewardship tasks in conjunction with DEC’s efforts in the Catskills. The contract was funded through the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF).

The DEC, Trail Conference and other regional partners will identify specific needs and the Trail Conference will recruit, train and supervise volunteers working on specific projects across multiple DEC divisions and at various sites in the Catskills. Project may include trail construction and maintenance, fish sampling, invasive
species control, research and monitoring of State Lands, and a broad range of other activities.

For more information about the Catskill Conservation Corps, please email the Trail Conference.
