Environmental Protection Fund Advocacy Day 2020

Join the Trail Conference for a day in Albany advocating for open space, parks, and trails.

Last year, Governor Andrew Cuomo appropriated $300 million for the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF), continuing the historic funding level he established for the EPF the previous year. The EPF has directly supported the Trail Conference by providing funding for the rehabilitation of trails on Bear Mountain, including the original section of the Appalachian Trail, as part of the iconic Bear Mountain Trails Project. It funds the Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM), for which the Trail Conference serves as the host organization. The EPF is an annual avenue of support for Trail Conference projects, including the important work of open space acquisition and preservation for our long-distance trails, and we will ask representatives to back its full funding. 

If you love New York trails and parks, this is a great opportunity to tell your representatives why they deserve to be protected.
