Join us as we welcome our new Agricultural Program Manager, Connor Young. Since early 2019, Connor served as the Director of Agriculture and Environmental Programs for Cornell Cooperative Extension Columbia and Greene Counties where he worked with diverse partners across the Catskill/Hudson Valley Region. Connor’s past experience also includes overseeing livestock operations for a statewide land conservation organization in Massachusetts in addition to private farm management. As a former WAC Easement Stewardship Program Coordinator, Connor wholeheartedly supports the WAC mission and is excited to deliver innovative and impactful projects throughout the NYC Watershed. 

Connor has a Bachelors of Science in Natural Resource Conservation from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a Masters in Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School, and two non-profit management certificates from Cornell University.

Connor lives with his wife and dogs in East Meredith. Having grown up in Vermont, there’s a good chance you’ll find him outside in all seasons. Connor is an active hunter, woodworker and enjoys producing food for his family ranging from meat and eggs, to maple and mushrooms.
