Join the Catskill Park Coalition for their annual Catskill Park Awareness Day. Each year the Catskill Park Coalition travels to Albany to raise awareness of the urgent issues impacting the Catskill Park and Firest Preserve.

The Governor’s report says: “New York State commits to spending at least $5 million in the Catskills to conserve land, improve signage, increase trail mileage and upgrade our campgrounds. In addition, over the next three years, the Department of Environmental Conservation intends to purchase over 500 acres in the Catskills to add to the Forest Preserve. We will establish signage so that visitors can find trailheads and increase trail mileage for hikers, mountain bikers, and other users. We will renovate our campgrounds with more amenities for visitors. Working in concert with local partners, we will work to develop and implement the Catskill Master Plan and Stewardship program. These combined efforts will bring much-needed tourism to the area.”

The projects proposed by the Governor can strengthen the Catskill Park and Forest Preserve if increased land stewardship meets the demand of increased promotion. All the while making sure that our region’s Main Street economy benefits from increased use of our region’s beloved public lands.
