Conservation Service Award Program

One of the 46ers primary Conservation Programs is the performance of volunteer trail work with the permission of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Our four Trailmasters arrange a yearly schedule of activities which is announced each spring. Both members and Aspiring Forty-Sixers are encouraged to participate.

In conjunction with this program the Board has created the Conservation Service Award program. The Outdoor Skills Work shop and the Trailhead Steward Program have been added to the list of ways to earn the Conservation service award. The Trailmasters maintain records of time spent by volunteers which qualifies the participants for recognition at various levels of service – 46 hours, 146 hours, 346 hours, 546 hours, 746 hours, and 1046 hours.
