The Catskills Lark in the Park started in 2004 to recognize and celebrate the centennial of the creation of the Catskill Park. Since its inception, the Lark has brought together hundreds of people and dozens of organizations that have participated in hundreds of events, all aimed at heightening awareness of the Catskill Mountains region of New York State and the Catskill Park. Activities have included organized hikes, bicycle trips, paddles, service, cultural and educational events. The coordination of this event is managed through a partnership between the Catskill Mountain ClubThe Catskill Center, the  New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

The 2016 Lark hosted 59 events,  including some never before offered activities — ranging from hikes to paddles, mountaintop yoga, fishing instruction and cultural events — there is something for everyone!
