The Catskill Park Coalition is an alliance of like-minded groups committed to working together to broaden public appreciation for the Catskill Park and seek additional resources to enhance, maintain, and make available to the public the extraordinary opportunities the Park and its surroundings offer and can offer.
Catskill Park Awareness Day 2016
Our next Catskill Park Awareness day is scheduled for February 9, 2016 in Albany. Be sure to join the Catskill Park Coalition for a series of team leader trainings in January, hosted by the Catskill Center. These trainings are geared towards folks interested in leading a group of volunteers thru the New York State Capitol and Legislative Office Building for appointments with legislators to HELP BUILD A MODERN PARK!

Pays Off! The results are in, and they show that our 49 representatives from 28 Catskill environmental and community groups speaking with one voice made an impression on state officials during our February 25 visit to Albany.
It takes a coalition…to advocate for our Park. At the heart of our lives in the Catskills is the Park and its Forest Preserve lands. The Park is key to our identity and sense of place and often a centerpiece in our efforts to create a sustainable economy in a rural area. In their own right, the Forever Wild Forest Preserve lands have an integrity that deserves respect, and we aim to be the best stewards we can for both today and tomorrow.
This page is still a work in progress. We intend it to be a kind of blog, where individuals and groups can post thoughts, comments, images and other material relating to the Catskill Park and the activities that go on inside the Blue Line. It will also provide a mechanism for your being in touch with us and our being in touch with you. But all that is in the future – hopefully weeks rather than months off. In the meantime, here are a few pictures.
