About the Catskill Center Founded in 1969, the Catskill Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that preserves and enriches the environmental, economic, and cultural well-being of the Catskill region.

The Catskill Center serves as the host organization for the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP), one of eight Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMs) in New York. The mission of CRISP is to promote education, prevention, early detection, and control of invasive species to limit their impact on the ecosystems and economies of the Catskills.
We are seeking four motivated and reliable Invasive Species Strike Team Technicians to join us in controlling invasive species throughout the Catskills this season: Two Aquatic Strike Team Technicians and two Terrestrial Strike Team Technicians.
