Catskill Mountain Kids - Geology Walk

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

This week our guest instructor for Catskill Mountain Kids is Steve “The DIrtmeister” Tomecek, geologist and writer of kid-friendly science for National Geographic! Join us for a great geology lesson and insight into the Catskills. He’ll take us on a walk of the trails talking about how Catskills geology took shape and continues to form today.

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
