Volunteering at Buttermilk & Bear Slides

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: MORGAN DUKE CONSERVATION SOCIETY

Morgan Duke Conservation Society has a Volunteer Stewardship Agreement with NYSDEC Region 5 to allow us to protect the environment at Hudson River Recreation Area (Buttermilk & Bear Slides)

Individuals and students can sign up as a volunteer with Morgan Duke Conservation Society to help protect the environment by picking up litter throughout the area in campsites, along River Road, parking lots and the bear slides. Volunteers can help with painting the trail gates, out houses, picnic tables. Volunteers can attend the community clean up and tree planting events held by volunteer steward James Sullivan.

There are no set amount of hours that you have to work, no set schedules, and no minimum amount of times that you have to volunteer. Volunteers work independently to pick up litter and remove litter along the trails, campsites, and parking lots.

As volunteers in this Program, participants are provided with the same liability and workers= compensation protection as salaried state employees, as long as they are acting within the scope and terms of the Agreement and comply with the Department's guidelines for use of volunteers.



No Skills or Experience required! Questions can be sent to Volunteer Steward James Sullivan Jsullivan@morgandukecs.ngo
