Catskill Mountain Kids: Wildlife Tracking

  • Maurice D. Hinchey Catskills Visitor Center 5096 State Route 28 Mt. Tremper United States (map)

This week for Catskill Mountain Kids, join us at the Catskills Visitor Center in welcoming DEC Biologist Emily Carrollo in a program all about wildlife, tracks and tracking, bears, and how animals survive a Catskills winter. The program will include a walk on the nature trails at the Visitor Center. Prepare for a short hike with layers, shoes with traction, and a water bottle!

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.
