NY Program Sponsors
We are grateful to all the agencies, foundations, and organizations that support TIC in New York State.
NY Chapters of Trout Unlimited
For many TIC teachers, the local chapter of TU is the first resource for funding, technical, and field support. Here are sites for a few of our participating chapters in New York.
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
In addition to providing valuable education resources and much-needed support for NY TIC, the NYS DEC has developed guidelines for all TIC projects taking place within New York. This includes where to get trout eggs and rules about stocking our fry in the spring. Please look closely at these guidelines--it is ecologically and legally imperative that we follow these state procedures.
Watershed Education Resource Directory (PDF)
The Watershed Environmental Education Alliance (WEEA) has compiled a resource directory listing all the environmental learning centers in and around New York City's drinking water watersheds. This area includes the Catskills and the lower Hudson Valley. Please contact us if you know of a center or resource that is missing from this publication.
New York City Department of Environmental Protection
This city agency is one of NY TIC's biggest supporters. Visit their website for information about the City's drinking water supply watersheds. They also have a detailed education page with activities and resources for educators and students.
