Nicholas Pitel

Conservation Projects Manager

Nick joined CLC in September 2019, and previously worked to protect agricultural land and forests.

He also helped farmers and forest landowners implement best management practices on their lands through conservation planning. He grew up exploring the outdoors of Otsego County, which sparked his fascination with nature at an early age. Nick is passionate about strategic land conservation and management and is excited to help preserve the rural character and ecologically important areas of Columbia County. He enjoys hiking, camping, and gardening with his wife and their two young daughters.
