Catskill Mountainkeeper is a grassroots advocacy organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the unique and irreplaceable Catskill Region of New York State. We are equally committed to vigorously fighting threats to our region and pursuing opportunities for sustainable growth. We are focused on maintaining our region’s capacity to provide pure unfiltered water to over 17 million people; continuing as an important food shed that provides local, healthy food to the entire NY metro area; and protecting our authentic wilderness so that it can be enjoyed by all.
We represent the citizens of seven counties in New York State – Albany, Delaware, Greene, Otsego, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster as well as both the Upper Delaware and Susquehanna River basins which reach from Cooperstown well into Pennsylvania and include the vast forest preserve of the Catskill Park.
Catskill Mountainkeeper is a 501(c)(3) public charity. We rely solely upon charitable donations to further our mission.
