DEC considers how to handle popularity of Kaaterskill Clove

Apr 26, 2023 12:55 pm

The Times Union reports that the state Department of Environmental Conservation will hold public meetings in the Adirondack High Peaks and Catskills to make recommendations about handling all the visitors to popular spots such as Kaaterskill Clove in Haines Falls. “DEC’s sustainable use initiatives require public participation to be successful,” DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos said in a statement. “Listening to public and stakeholder perspectives about the High Peaks and Kaaterskill Clove project areas will provide DEC with the important data to support successful strategies for balancing conservation and public access in these popular Forest Preserve destinations.” The DEC says they are looking into the experiential, social and public safety elements of visitor use at the popular sites. The first meeting is in the Adirondacks May 9, and a second May 10 is from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Coppertree Restaurant, at Hunter Mountain. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
