Volunteers from the Long Distance Trail Crew working on the Long Path in the Slide Mountain Wilderness

Your support will help continue and expand our Catskill Community Trails Program and the Catskill Conservation Corps.  Your gift will be put to work on the trails, lean-tos, stewardship and advocacy of open space and Forever Wild forest lands in the Catskill Mountains and Catskill Park.  

Our work in the Catskills includes advocacy for the Catskill Park and region, volunteer management for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation on state lands, and regional outdoor recreation planning in addition to trail, bridge and lean-to maintenance, repair and reconstruction. This work is completed by a mix of staff and volunteers and requires ongoing funding, volunteer labor, building materials, tools and support.

We work closely with trail volunteers, state and local agencies, and community groups to enhance and promote the Catskill Park, its recreational trails, lean-tos and to secure access to open space in the region.
