As we begin our 85th year, we continue to work on behalf of the sportsmen and women of New York.
The Council's members are a dedicated group of volunteers who donate their time and resources to advocate for their fellow sportsmen and women, tracking bills affecting the sporting community and following other issues like land use throughout New York State. New concerns, such as motorized access to state lands, whether on snowmobiles or four-wheelers, have arisen and the NYSCC is one of the voices in the hearing rooms of the NYS Legislature. We are the consistent voice of conservation and wise use.
Join or donate today to help us conserve our natural resources.
Do you know of someone who should be recognized for his or her achievements? Consider nominating that person for one of the Council’s annual awards – Professional, Volunteer or Youth Conservationist, Outdoor Program Contest, Conservation Educator, Lifetime Achievement, or NYSCC’s President’s Award.

Save the dates! September 14-16 – NYSCC Annual Meeting at the Delta by Marriott (formerly the Radisson Hotel Utica Centre), 200 Genesee Street in Utica, NY.
SPOTLIGHT ON REGION 5

NYSCC members in Region 5 have been active in outdoor pursuits: helping the DEC stock fish, hunting, ice-fishing and enjoying the beauty of their area.
Whether you're a fisherman, a boater, a hiker or a hunter, there's plenty to do in New York State's Region 5. The majority of the Adirondack Park lies within this region, giving residents and visitors alike the opportunity to spend time in the woods or on the water.
