Upcoming Events

Welcome to the Schoharie River Center!

Happy New Year!

Since 1999 the Schoharie River Center, Inc. has been serving youth, their families and communities in Schenectady, Schoharie and Montgomery Counties.  Our mission is to instill a love for learning and science, promoting the values of stewardship for our local environment, and encouraging the positive and responsible involvement of all people in their communities.  

Our Environmental Study Team program (EST) has been actively engaging and involving over 800 area youth (and their parents) in the scientific monitoring of freshwater resources and the study of local ecology, history and traditional arts of the Schoharie and Mohawk River Basin.  EST youth (ages 13 - 18 yrs old)  work hard to learn and develop new life skills as they monitor, document and report their findings regarding the water quality of local streams, lakes, and rivers.  They graduate from High School, pursue college and live productive and socially responsible lives. It’s exciting to watch them becoming our future leaders.  

Major accomplishments at the SRC this year include:

Additionally, the SRC, with a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, has hosted and provided a forum for workshops, exhibits and programs featuring local and traditional artists and art forms including braided rug making, fly rod making, music and bee keeping.

Our programs are open to all youth and families, and we rely on grant funding and private donations to ensure that our high quality programming is accessible and affordable by all who want to participate. We hope you will continue to support our efforts with a tax deductible donation to the Schoharie River Center.

To join the Schoharie River Center an annual membership costs only $35.00. Come visit us at our Educational Center in Burtonsville. You’ll be glad you did.
