Who we are

The Climate Smart Claverack Committee (CSCC) is made up of residents dedicated to imagining the best future for the town of Claverack in terms of climate resiliency, infrastructure and community spaces. We believe that making climate smart choices improves the lives of our neighbors and makes Claverack an even more beautiful place to live.

Local Actions

The CSCC acts in an advisory capacity for the Claverack Town Board by identifying, researching, proposing and then helping to implement climate-centered projects. These include:

  • Working toward Bronze Status as part of the New York State Climate Smart Communities Initiative

  • Drafting a Climate Action Plan for the municipality

  • Engaging in various community education projects


Check out our Local Actions page for a more detailed list of current and future projects.
