Summary

Creator:
Otsego County Conservation Association
Date Coverage:
1967-2001
Quantity:
6.4 cubic ft.

The Otsego County Conservation Association (usually abbreviated OCCA) was founded in 1968 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection of natural resources within Otsego County ["History", http://www.occainfo.org/pages/history.html, 13 August 2004]. Founder Frederick H. V. Mecklenberg, known as "Mecky" to friends, remained an active force and an inspirational figure in OCCA from its earliest days until his death in 1991.

The primary goals of OCCA are to support and promote the conservation of Otsego County's natural resources; to support and publicize conservation-related educational programs; to cooperate with similar organizations and with all levels of government to "promote maximum benefit from privately owned rural land"; and to enhance appreciation for rural living ["Bylaws of the Otsego County Conservation Association, Incorporated", 13 September 1990, Series 1, Box 1, Folder 18].

OCCA is governed by an elected board of volunteer directors. Officers include a president, a vice-president, a secretary, and a treasurer. The Board of Directors meets monthly. Full membership meetings are held annually, usually in October. Committees, which form to address specific issues, include the Otsego Lake Committee, the Land Use Committee, the Conservation Education Committee, and the Scientific Advisory Committee ["Mission Statement", May 1991, Series 1, Box 3, Folder 3].

In 1994, OCCA hired its first full-time employee. Teresa Winchester was originally hired as Coordinator, but her title was later changed to Executive Director.

OCCA has long enjoyed a close relationship with the State University of New York College at Oneonta's Biological Field Station, a research facility located along the shore of Otsego Lake. The Field Station's longtime director, Willard Harman, has served as OCCA president, and from 1991-1993 OCCA provided funding for an Environmental Administrator at the Field Station, J. Joseph Homberger. OCCA has also collaborated with other local and regional environmental organizations on issues of mutual concern; most notably with Otsego 2000 on issues such as the Glimmerglass State Park proposed motor boat launch in the 1990s.

Presidents of OCCA in the years covered by this collection were:

Frederick H. V. Mecklenberg, 1968-1973

John Olsen, 1973-1975

Willard Harman, 1975-1978

Bill Powers, 1978-1979

Willard Harman, 1979-1981

Irene Mozolewski, 1981-1989

Lewis Hamilton, 1989-1992

James Austin, 1992-1994

Bonnie Canning Hoffman, 1994-1997

Edna Holowachuk, 1997-2000

James Bernegger, 2000-

This collection covers OCCA's administration from its founding in 1968 through 2001. Activities of the Board of Directors are well-documented through meeting agendas, minutes, and correspondence. There are detailed reports on the activities of the OCCA Coordinator and the Biological Field Station's Environmental Administrator. Monthly treasurer's reports provide evidence of OCCA's financial affairs. Evidence of committee activity is limited. However, there are files for the Scientific Advisory Committee, the Otsego Lake Committee, the Financial Committee, and the Executive Committee.

The collection also contains a great deal of information on OCCA's environmental initiatives within Otsego County, particularly during the 1990s. Best-documented are OCCA's activities related to Otsego Lake and to solid waste management. The Otsego Lake files include a great deal of material on OCCA's opposition to a motor boat launch in Glimmerglass State Park, proposed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Other Otsego Lake issues covered by this collection include commercial and residential development along the shore of the lake, fish and fishery management, lake management, and watershed management. The solid waste files focus on controversy related to the Montgomery-Otsego-Schoharie Solid Waste Management Authority (MOSA), a three-county solid waste consortium that proved extremely costly to Otsego County in the mid to late 1990s.

There are also files related to other environmental projects and issues. These include files on the Cherry Valley Sewer Initiative, the Wal-Mart distribution center in Sharon Springs, and Otsego 2000s lawsuit against the County Planning Board, as well as subject files on general issues of environmental concern such as agriculture and water pollution.

Other OCCA activities are not as well-documented. OCCA offers annual fellowships and assistantships to researchers at the SUNY Oneonta Biological Field Station, and sponsors several students each year at the Department of Environmental Conservation's summer camp for children and teens. However, information on these activities is limited. There is also not much information on membership involvement in the organization, apart from minutes and agendas from the annual membership meeting.

Divided into 4 topical file series.

Contents of Collection

Quantity: 2.5 cubic ft.

This series contains material related to the administration of the Association, dating from its incorporation in 1968 through 2001. Included are a near-complete run of board meeting agendas and minutes, monthly financial reports, by-laws, incoming and outgoing correspondence of board presidents and the executive director, committee reports, monthly reports from the Coordinator, and copies of OCCA's official newsletter. There are also some membership lists, a book tracking members and their dues payments from 1972-1988, and minutes from annual membership meetings. Because of the close relationship between SUNY Oneonta's Biological Field Station and OCCA, files related to the Field Station, such as the files of the Environmental Administrator, are included in this series. The Environmental Administrator's files consist primarily of reading files, which contain extensive outgoing correspondence, memos and reports written by the Environmental Administrator from 1991-1993.

Arranged alphabetically.

This series documents OCCA's concern with and activities related to solid waste management in Otsego County. Many files document MOSA, the Montgomery-Otsego-Schoharie Solid Waste Management Authority. MOSA files consist mostly of correspondence, news clippings, and reports. They provide detailed documentation of public dissatisfaction with MOSA and Otsego County's legal struggles with the Authority. There are also numerous subject files on solid waste management in other New York State counties, as well as files on general waste management issues.

Arranged alphabetically.
