Team Leader Training - Catskill Park Awareness Day

  • Catskill Center 43355 Route 28 Arkville, NY 12406 (map)

Each year the Catskill Park Coalition gathers in Albany to meet with legislators to discuss the urgent needs of the Catskill Park and Forest Preserve. This annual Catskill Park Awareness Day event last year generated an historic line item for the region under New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Aid to Localities budget.

Join us Tuesday, February 9th in Albany!



Interested in stepping up and lending a hand? Join as a team leader and help us speak directly with legislators to HELP US BUILD A MODERN PARK!

Team leader trainings are a chance to get in depth knowledge about our past success and where we're headed in the future. You'll learn how to speak with your representatives in Albany to garner strong support for our region.

Team leaders lead a group of 5 or so volunteers through the New York State Capitol Building and the Legislative Office Building to meetings with legislators throughout the day and help kick off the conversation with legislators. We give you all the information you need to make the case for stronger state support for the Catskill region.  

We'll be hosting three team leader trainings in January, in advance of Tuesday, February 9th, the actual Awareness Day. It's not a requirement to attend a training, especially if you've led teams in the past, but attending one of these trainings (no need to attend all three!) will give you a chance to sharpen your skills and make a stronger case to our legislators in Albany. 

Help build on our success, HELP US BUILD A MODERN PARK!
