Catskill Conservation Corps Hosts a Litter Pick-Up At Blue Hole, Sundown, NY

  • Blue Hole Peekamoose Road (map)

Where: Blue Hole, Peekamoose Road, Sundown, NY

Contact: Doug Senterman,; 518-628-4243

The Catskill Conservation Corps invites volunteers to pick up litter at Blue Hole, the Peekamoose trailhead and Sundown Primitive Camping area on Sunday, October 25th from 1pm to 3pm. Come out and help us do one last litter pick up for the year to clean the area up for winter. Volunteers will be working with Catskill Conservation Corps (CCC) staff to remove litter from the roadside, trail, campsites, and vicinity. When we’re finished, enjoy a swim in Blue Hole – easily one of the most beautiful and remote swimming holes in the Catskills!

Volunteers should be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. Dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and our activities; pack plenty of water and snacks; and bring work gloves if you have them. CCC staff will also provide some light refreshments and we will have some extra work gloves available. 

For more information and directions, please call Doug Senterman at 518-628-4243, or email Doug at While pre-registration is not required, we’d love to know how many batches of The CCC will be hosting additional work trips, litter pick-ups and other volunteer stewardship activities through the remainder of 2015 and throughout 2016. To get involved, please visit and fill out the interest form. And keep checking our website and Facebook page too!
