Education and Outreach

Educating today’s youth is paramount to building an informed citizenry.  At OCCA we believe that through our environmental education classroom programs, outdoor education experiences, and lecture series we can help Otsego County residents be well-versed in the preservation of our natural resources.  Our outreach efforts on issues such as clean energy, recycling, and land management also give our residents information and activities on important programs around the county.
