THorn Preserve is sublime

But the parking is a mess — and we’ve fixed it!

THANK YOU! In 2018 thanks to your generosity we were able to construct a new gravel parking area at the Catskill Center’s Thorn Preserve!

Now we’re on to additional improvements including an informational kiosk for the parking area, trail access and wooden fencing!

Located at 55 John Joy Road in Woodstock, NY, the Preserve is a joint project of the Catskill Center and the Woodstock Land Conservancy. The Thorn Preserve is 60 acres of meadow, woodland, streamside and wetland—open to the public daily—from dawn to dusk. 

All operations, improvements and maintenance on the Preserve happen only because of the generous support of people like you. Special recognition will be made for gifts of $1000 or more.

Thank you!
