DONATIONS TO THE CATSKILL CENTER SUPPORT
The Catskill Center works hard to preserve and foster the Catskills by serving as a convener, fostering partnerships, facilitating discussions and supporting collaboration throughout our region.
Education, Arts and Culture
The Catskill Center supports education, arts and culture throughout the Catskills including at the Erpf Gallery, Catskill Interpretive Center's sculpture park, Platte Clove's Artist in Residence Program and through educational curriculums for local schools and teachers. We provide scholarships to students from the Catskills for summer camps and colleges. At the Catskill Interpretive Center, we help visitors and residents alike learn about, explore and interpret the natural, cultural and historical resources of the Catskills.
Through our stewardship programs including the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership, the Streamside Acquisition Program and the Catskill Center Land Trust, we are working to protect and preserve the natural resources of the Catskills. CRISP is working to turn the tide on invasive species in the Catskills, the SAP is preserving forested, streamside lands essential for protecting water quality and our land trust holds conservation easements totaling 2,550 acres and owns four properties totaling 367 acres. These include our Thorn Preserve, Platte Clove Preserve and the lands of the Catskill Interpretive Center.
