Catskill Mountain Kids - Meet a Forest Ranger

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

Join us this week as welcome two Catskills Park Rangers to the Visitor Center! Learn what it’s like to be a Ranger with show and tell of equipment and uniforms and enjoy a short walk on the trails to learn more about the Park and the species and wildlife they help to protect.

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
