Environment

Our staff engages communities to solve and respond to key environmental challenges, reduce and make more equitable our collective use of the Earth's resources, and inspire respect for natural systems and our reliance on them.  CCE Ulster County's Environment program area has three areas of focus, water resources, invasive species and forestry.  We partner with agencies like Ulster County Soil and Water Conservation District, NYS DEC, NYC DEP, Hudson River Estuary Program and the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership Program (CRISP) on projects.
