Why should you support Catskill Mountainkeeper? We love the Catskills, and know you do too. Over the last five years, Mountainkeeper has become its leading advocate, working tirelessly to protect the region from imminent threats like hazardous gas drilling while encouraging a sustainable future through smart planning and promotion of the region’s agricultural and tourism industries. While we have made great progress under surmountable odds, the future of New York State is still unclear. The decision on fracking from Albany is looming; we don’t have much time to ensure our voices are heard and dually represented.
We need to increase our efforts, our actions and our giving, before it’s too late. Advocating for the Catskills needs to be a group effort. That’s why across the region, generous members of the community are donating their time, goods and services in support of the work we do. It is with thanks to them, that we offer the following to you: Contribute $20 or more to Mountainkeeper between now and December 31st, and be entered into a drawing for: Please join us.

Together, we can protect the vast resources and unique character of the beautiful and irreplaceable Catskill region.
