ALBANY — New York's Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York/New Jersey Trail Conference have formed a partnership to protect natural resources and enhance recreation in the Catskill Mountain region.

The Catskills Conservation Corps aims to engage more people in stewardship and outdoor recreation projects in the Catskills.

Under a contract with DEC, the Trail Conference will recruit and supervise volunteers to perform various stewardship tasks in conjunction with DEC's efforts in the Catskills.

The contract totals approximately $75,000 for two years, funded through the Environmental Protection Fund, with an option to extend the agreement for an additional three years.

DEC will identify specific needs and the Trail Conference will recruit, train and supervise volunteers working on specific projects.
