New York State DEC offering ‘trail supporter’ patch

February 23, 2017
By staff , Lake Placid News

The state Department of Environmental Conservation is offering a newly designed "trail supporter" patch for sale starting March 1.

The patch, which costs $5, is designed to look like a blue DEC trail marker. This is the first of three colors that will be offered.

The patches can be purchased anywhere a hunting or fishing license is sold.

The patch can also be purchased on the DEC's license website at

All proceeds from the sale of patches will be put into the Conservation Fund's Outdoor Recreation, Trail Maintenance and Development account to be used to maintain and improve non-motorized recreation trails throughout the state.

The patch was first introduced in 2007 and has since raised more than $21,000. Some of that money has been used to build bridges on the Finger Lakes trail and Northville-Placid trail among other projects. For more information, go to
