U.S. – India Exchange comes to Mount Tremper

April 11, 2017: A delegation of senior level Forest Supervisors from India’s state agencies will be in Mount Tremper to give a presentation on forest management and water for drinking, agriculture and hydro-power in India. The presentation will be on Wednesday, April 26, at 6:30 PM at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center—5096 Route 28, Mount Tremper, New York. This special presentation is open to the public, free of charge and anyone who is interested in this unique perspective on forest lands and public water supply in India is encouraged to attend.

A U.S. – India Exchange is underway as an opportunity to learn about forest management in the Catskill Mountains and the protection to the New York City Watershed. The delegation from India will tour Watershed facilities from New York City to the reservoirs in the Catskills. The Partnership for Land Use Science Program (aka Forest PLUS) is sponsoring the exchange. The India Exchange Presentation: Forest Management and Water for Drinking, Agriculture and Hydro-Power in India is an opportunity to learn about India’s forest management practices and issues impacting their forest health and water quality.

“The Catskill Center is excited to host this unique opportunity to learn first-hand about forest management practices in India. We hope to see a lot of people at the CIC to enjoy this,” stated Jeff Senterman, Catskill Center Executive Director.
