The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) was created on July 1, 1970 to combine all state programs designed to protect and enhance the environment into a single agency.
Here at Westchester County Parks, it is our mission to create life-enriching experiences at safe, clean, affordable parks and preserve our natural resources through responsible leadership.
GLOBE is a K-12 program to improve science education by involving students and their teachers in world-wide research examining long-term global change. We train teachers to provide authentic, inquiry-based science education for their students. In addition to GLOBE teacher training workshops, GLOBE NY Metro directs Into the Woods and the Metropolitan Alliance.
