Conservation Fund Advisory Board

NYS Conservation Fund Advisory Board

The NYS Conservation Fund Advisory Board (CFAB) was established by law to make recommendations to state agencies on state government plans, policies, and programs affecting fish and wildlife.

CFAB consults with and advises DEC about expenditure of Conservation Fund monies and ways to increase revenue to this fund. CFAB also submits a report annually to the Commissioner of the DEC. The primary purpose of this report is to advise the Commissioner regarding CFAB’s assessment of the extent to which expenditures and appropriations from the Conservation Fund are consistent with the requirements of state law. The report also contains recommendations on funding the States’s fish and wildlife program to ensure that New York’s natural resources are protected and enjoyed now and in the future.

Public hunting and trapping is allowed on the conservation easements shown on these maps, but because rules and regulations are different for each conservation easement, members of the public wishing to hunt or trap on a particular easement property are strongly encouraged to contact the local DEC office (see Important Numbers) before planning a trip.
