A non-profit organization preserving and protecting the world we live in
~ OUR MISSION ~
NYSCC's mission is to aid in the formulation and establishment of sound policies and practices designed to conserve, protect, restore and perpetuate forests, wildlife and scenic and recreational areas with especial regard to the state of New York, to the general end that the present and succeeding generations may continue to enjoy and to use these great natural resources.
The NYSCC is the oldest conservation organization in New York State, comprised of volunteers who are concerned with sound management of the state's and the nation's land, water, fish and wildlife. Our members are involved in all aspects dealing with the environment, ranging from educating youth and adults, to legislation, and including hands-on projects, cleaning up waterways and roadsides, and habitat improvement projects.

You can use Grass Roots News to promote or highlight your club activities
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling about the who, what, when, where and why of your upcoming event. Include your name and phone number for people to contact you if they want more information. The deadline for submissions is the third Wednesday of each month.
If you want to feature an activity in greater depth, tell us in more detail about the who, what, when, where and why. Include photos of the people involved, preferably doing something associated with your event, i.e., kids tying flies or actively fishing or hunting as opposed to standing in a group holding prizes or trophies. When you take photos ask people to remove their hats so their face won’t be in shadow. Identify people in the photos so we can put proper captions with any pictures we might use. And ask parent’s permission to take and print their child’s photo.
