Catskill Park Volunteer
Volunteers donate thousands of hours of their precious time annually to help maintain, protect, sustain and advocate for the Catskill Park.
Within the Catskill Park, the Trail Conference has responsibility for maintaining 29 backcountry lean-tos and about 200 miles of hiking trails. In addition, we work with New York State, non-profit partners and local communities in the region to identify additional volunteer opportunities Catskill Park wide on a multitude of stewardship activities and direct volunteers to those opportunities.
By indicating your interest in a volunteer opportunity in the Catskill Park below, we will work with you to identify the best opportunity based on your interests and will contact you with available opportunities.
Opportunities range in commitment from a few hours, to a day to longer commitments where you are able to adopt trail segments or lean-tos. No experience is necessary, as we will provide training and safety information for all of our activities, as well as provide tools and materials where necessary. We also offer a number of additional training opportunities through our Trail University workshop program.
