Catskill Mountain Kids - All About (Spooky) Invasives and a Halloween Costume Contest

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

Come dressed for a Halloween Costume Contest and for an adventure on the trails at the Visitor Center this Saturday. Geared to kids and their families, this weekend has an opportunity to help us weed out invasive species of plants on our nature trails, while also having fun, participating in a game and art activity, and learning more about the ecology of the Catskills! Local snacks and Halloween treats will be provided.

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 Fall session will run for 6 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. Please note the Fall 2019 session will meet on Saturdays.

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.
