Welcome to the New York-North Jersey Chapter!

Our region comprises New York City, Southeastern New York, including Long Island, and Northeastern New Jersey. The Chapter has more than 150 activity leaders who run over 1,000 outdoor recreation activities and programs each year. Whatever your outdoor interests are, we have something for you!


We’re committed to the protection of mountains, waterways, forests, and trails in the New York-North Jersey area. Learn how you can take action.


Whether you want to enjoy stunning views on a hike, canoe on a river, rock climb, learn wilderness first aid skills, or go backpacking in the backcountry, we’ve got activities for you.
