Catskill Mountain Kids - Trees

  • Maurice D. Hinchey Catskills Visitor Center 5096 State Route 28 Mount Tremper, NY 12457 (map)

This week for the first session of Catskill Mountain Kids, we’re studying trees! Come to the Center to learn about different kinds of leaves, what to look for when identifying trees, and make your own mini tree field guides.

Catskill Mountain Kids is a year-round weekly daytime program series that celebrates the nature, history and culture of the Catskills. Each session will include some focused learning time, hands-on activities, and outdoor exploration. The program is geared for ages 4-7 but all are welcome. Please dress for the weather/being outside and the possibility of getting messy.

The Summer session will run for 8 weeks and include programs on seasonal themes - more details will be added as the dates get closer. We’d love to see families come back every week, but you can also feel free to pick & choose the dates that work for you.

Suggested weekly donation: $2/child (max of $5/family), members free. Donations support the ongoing programs and operations of the Catskills Visitor Center, a program of the Catskill Center nonprofit organization
