Celebrate #EarthWeek at one of our many family friendly events taking place all over #NYS:

Kaaterskill Falls, one of New York's tallest waterfalls is among the most iconic and highly visited sites in the Catskills. Located in Hunter NY, Kaaterskill Falls has been a major tourist attraction for over a hundred years. The falls have been a major site for the Hudson River School painters and have had some of the world's largest wooden hotels. • Plant a mix of native trees along the riparian corridor in order to help stabilize the stream bank and protect water quality. Mostly upland tree species and some possible native shrub species. • Brush in herd paths caused by hikers traveling off trail around the top of the falls. Volunteers will attempt to hide these paths to encourage hikers to stay on the designated trails. • Clean up litter that has collected over the winter months. All ages welcome. Sign up to volunteer on the Parks & Trails New York website
