Adopt-A-Trail Program

Adopt-A-Trail is a volunteer program headquartered at Papscanee Island Nature Preserve.  It is sponsored by the Rensselaer County Legislature and managed by the RCEMC.  The program runs throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall months.  Volunteers maintain specific trails throughout the Preserve, keeping them free of litter and brush.

Additional county-wide cleanups include Earth Day and regular seasonal cleanups in the Spring and Fall.

Volunteerism through the Rensselaer County Environmental Management Council is a great way to actively participate in the community while having a positive influence on the surrounding environment.  Please join us in making Rensselaer County a better place to live and work.

Contact Ann Shaughnessy at (518) 270-2888 or enviro@rensco.com for more information.
