Since1940, Conservation Districts in New York have led local efforts in their pledge to save and faithfully defend from waste the natural resources of our country - its soil and minerals, its forests, waters and wildlife.

Our Mission

The mission of Rondout Neversink Stream Management Program is to protect and restore stream system stability and ecological integrity by providing for the long-term stewardship of streams and floodplains. 

We walk with the water but water never stops to draw breath or listen, it is going on its journey. We can’t keep up with it.
— Inez George Gridley, Journey from Red Hill: Selected Poems 1931-1996

How We work:

  • Multi-objective watershed stream management plans
  • Informed by latest stream science and regional data 
  • Restoration demonstrates best practices for stream system stability
  • Utilizing native plant material; controlling invasive species.
