This area will keep you informed of up-to-date environmental issues as presented by the Rensselaer County Environmental Management Council (EMC).

The primary purpose of the EMC is to advise elected leaders on issues regarding the environment and natural resources. In Rensselaer County, it is an arm of the County Legislature. Rensselaer County’s EMC is also active in a number of other areas, including the management of the 156-acre Papscanee Island Nature Preserve, the Adopt-A-Roadside and Adopt-A-Trail programs.

Rensselaer County Environmental Management Council encourages volunteerism throughout the community.  We currently have volunteer openings for our Adopt-A-Roadway, Adopt-A-Trail and county-wide cleanup programs.
