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.
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.
