Catskill view

The Catskill Conservation Corps (@CatskillCnCorps) launches with a new website and a volunteer leadership training opportunity!

The Catskill CC is a partnership between the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation that aims to increase and support volunteer opportunities on projects that protect natural resources and enhance outdoor recreation opportunities in the Catskill Mountains. Keep up with news, events, workshops, and volunteer opportunities in the Catskill region at its website, CatskillConservationCorps.org,  on Facebook, and Twitter.

Its first event is a Volunteer Leadership Training workshop scheduled for Saturday, August 9, at the beautifully restored former Ulster & Delaware Railroad station on the Mountain Top Historical Society campus in Haines Falls. The workshop will be led by experienced Trail Conference volunteer trail leaders.

While this workshop is geared toward training existing trail supervisors, no previous Trail Supervisor experience is necessary and all are welcome to attend to learn how to become more involved with stewardship activities in the Catskill Park. This workshop is a great opportunity to sharpen your leadership skills and learn how to manage volunteers.

There is no fee for this workshop, but you must register on the Trail Conference’s workshop page to attend. Click on the link below for more details and to register.
