New York State County Environmental Management Councils (EMCs) and Conservation Advisory Councils (CACs) are advisory councils tasked with advising local legislative bodies on preserving, protecting and enhancing the natural resources and environment of a County or municipality. Locally, many municipalities in Dutchess County have CACs.
CCEDC maintains a directory of contact information for local CACs and the Dutchess County EMC. Contact the Environment and Energy Program for more information on the directory and CACs.
