EMS will also be present at the event with giveaways and a gear raffle benefiting the fundraiser. In addition, there will be two guided hikes to Hunter Mountain and Diamond Notch Falls happening prior to the event.

The Catskill Center’s mission is “to protect and foster the environmental, cultural and economic well-being of the Catskill region.” Since 1969, it has led the effort to protect the more than 700,000 acres of the Catskill Park and Catskill Forest Preserve. Representatives of the Catskill Center will be present at the event to discuss their work— for more information, https://catskillcenter.org.
