Kiersted Tannery. 

Bob Gildersleeve and Paul LaPierre bring their experience and knowledge to an exploration of the tannery ruins and the streams and waterfalls in Kaaterskill Clove. This hike is difficult due to rough terrain and a steep climb over loose ground and some possible slippery wet spots. Wear proper footwear; a walking stick or poles are recommended. Meet 11:00 AM at the MTHS campus. A shorter hike than last year, we will concentrate on the tannery itself and return to the Society campus by 3:00pm for a talk by Paul Misko on the Impact of Tanneries on the Catskills. A pot luck supper to follow the talk.  A $5 donation is requested for the talk.  The donation for the lecture and supper will be $10 and a dish to share.  The MTHS will provide drinks, plates, cutlery and napkins.  Register for the hike and/or supper by contacting MTHS at 518-589-6557 (leave name/phone number/#in party) or email mthsdirector@mths.org.
