The Partnership

The Chemung Basin River Trail Partnership (CBRTP) is a coalition of agencies working together to protect our rivers and make them more accessible to everyone.

The Partnership formed in 1999 to develop a river trail system in the Chemung Valley and promote protection of the Chemung Basin. The Chemung Basin includes the Cohocton, Canisteo, Cowanesque, Tioga, and Chemung Rivers and various creeks in the area. In 2009 the partnership became part of the Friends of the Chemung River Watershed in Elmira, N.Y.

However, the CBRTP is part of a larger network throughout the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network that offers continued support, guidance and collaboration.
