Established in 1904, landscape diversity is the hallmark of the Catskill Park, changing in relative proportions over time, but always with the mix being more valuable than any one component. Public and private, wilderness areas, intensive use areas, wildlife habitat, working lands, nature and people, all point to the Catskill Park’s role as a living laboratory. The park is a grand experiment in how human communities can coexist with wilderness, geographically intermingled and historically entwined.
The Time and the Valleys Museum will host author Chris Olney for a virtual illustrated talk on his 2004 book, The Catskill Park – Inside the Blue Line (co-authored with Norman J. Van Valkenburgh), on Sunday, February 26th.
This program will begin at 2 pm. Admission is $5 for the public, free for museum members. Registration is required and can be completed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and putting Catskill Park Talk Link in the subject line, or by calling (845) 985-7700.
