Now More than Ever, Eco-tourism is Key to Reviving Tourist Industry
That’s something we love to do at Catskill Mountainkeeper. Our trail systems, and even our backcountry roads, in Sullivan County and the Catskills are some of the best in the nation.And over the last year, Trailkeeper.org, part of our Trailkeeper Network® initiative, has been a big part of our work to promote eco-tourism. Trailkeeper.org is a great online resource for hiking trails and local area attractions and amenities in Sullivan County that has drawn the attention of eco-friendly tourists, and encouraged them come to our area.
Amendment passed in New York State and we are likely to be the site of at least one casino, we can’t forget the importance of promoting eco-tourism in our Catskill Mountain region. That’s not only in terms of preserving our beautiful, but fragile ecology, but also in attracting potentially millions of non-gambling tourists to stay and spend in our region.
