ALBANY — New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation is selling patches to support maintenance work on outdoor recreation facilities.

The latest design of the New York State Trail Supporter Patch resembles the round yellow disks marking connector trails on state lands. The previous design was red, like markers used by DEC on east-west directional trails.







The patch is available for $5 at sporting license outlets or online at the state’s fishing and hunting license portal .

The patch was introduced in 2007 to help raise funds to maintain trails across the state. Sales have raised more than $41,000 to date.







Projects supported by patch sales include a boardwalk in Texas Hollow State Forest, foot bridges on the Northville Placid Trail, maintenance of Otter Creek Horse Trails and lean-tos in the High Peaks Wilderness.
