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. 

“STREAMS ARE DEEPER THAN YOU THINK... connected with other ecosystems in all directions. They rival coral reefs and tropical forests in color and richness of life.”
— Dr. Kurt Fausch, For the Love of Rivers

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.
