About the Schoharie River Center

Our mission:  to instill a love for learning, arts and science, promote the values of stewardship for our local environment, and encourage the positive and responsible involvement of all individuals in their communities.

The Schoharie River Center is a not-for-profit organization ​dedicated to educational and cultural programming about the Schoharie Creek and the communities which make up the Schoharie River Valley. Formed in 1999, it is a membership organization which sponsors and operates Environmental Study Team (EST) programs in the surrounding counties. Located in Burtonsville, NY, the Schoharie River Center is also active in a variety of community, historical and Cultural programs and activities.   We have expanded out programs to include the Mohawk River Valley and watershed and neighboring communities.

Our website highlights the Schoharie River Center’s accomplishments and core programs. For an overview of our programs and activities, visit schoharierivercenter.org.  You can also contact our Executive Director John McKeeby (518 875-6230).

Our board is active and engaged. We apply a range of skills from academia, law, activism, and the public and private sectors, to supporting and collaborating with our communities. There are many ways to support both the board and the alliance, but each board member commits to giving some time and labor every month. You can find information about our board here. Feel free to reach out to any one of us with questions.

We are eager to grow our board with representation from the diverse communities who live, work, and play in the Schoharie and Mohawk River Valleys. We are eager to take meaningful steps towards being a more open and inclusive organization. One of these steps is to ensure that a diverse group of people know about the opportunity to serve on our board.  We particularly encourage those who would not normally consider themselves typical board candidates.
