This week we welcome back NYSDEC Forest Ranger Kenny Gierloff for a program all about tracks - learn how to identify the tracks of Catskills wildlife in the snow, and then try making your own tracks…on snowshoes! We will have a limited number of snowshoes on hand for kids to try. We will be spending much of the time outside, so please dress comfortably for the weather (and feel free to warm up in our visitors center building as needed!).
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 Winter session will run for 7 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 donation: $2/child (max of $5/family), members free. Donations support the ongoing programs and operations of the Catskill Interpretive Center, a program of the Catskill Center nonprofit organization.
