CWICNY's NY Realtor Educational Training Program

Real estate agents are in a unique position to educate members of the public, many upon their first arrival to the Lake Champlain Basin and Adirondack Park. CWICNY's NY Realtor Educational Training Program aims at training realtors on the important interactions between the natural world and development, including septic system, wells, floodplains and wetlands, so they can, in turn, educate their clients on making informed decisions for land use planning. This was achieved by developing a 3-hour, NYS DOS approved Watershed Protection Course for Real Estate Professionals. CWICNY partnered with staff from the Chazen Companies, Southern Adirondack Realtors, Northern Adirondack Board of Realtors, and the Clinton County Board of Realtors to bring this training to area realtors, which was funded by the Lake Champlain Basin Program.
