The Environmental Study Team (EST) is an organization of students with a mission to improve the local environment, enjoy the outdoors, and instill a sense of environmental awareness in the community.

This dynamic network is an effective means of fostering environmental educational experiences and stewardship while directly benefiting the community and the environment.

Youth who are interested in joining EST should print out the application (click here), complete it, and have their parent/guardian review and sign the parental permission form, and then bring it to their first meeting. A parent or guardian should contact us by e-mail or phone to learn more about the program before coming to their first meeting.

For more information about EST contact John McKeeby at 875-6889 or via email at John.McKeeby@SchoharieRiverCenter.org
