High Use & Overuse in NYs Forest Preserves

Visitors and locals alike are concerned about the intensive use some of our Catskills trails and swimming holes saw during the summer of 2020. To address this, Mountainkeeper pulled together an expert panel to discuss what was happening in the forest preserve and how we can approach some of the problems. In November 2020, Rocci Aguirre of the Adirondack Council, Andy Mossey of the Catskill Center Ingrid Peterec of the US National Park Service, and Katie Petronis of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation joined to share their unique perspectives about how to protect our natural resources while welcoming visitors to the forest preserves.
