2017 Lark in the Park



Autumn is the Catskills’ annual glory moment with thousands flocking to the ridges and peaks for the breathtaking leaf display. Still, between the back-to-school flurry and the never-ending list of chores, sometimes we need a little push to go outside and take it all in.

In 2004, the Catskill Mountain Club launched Lark in the Park to entice people to visit the Catskill Park during this remarkable season. The park is a 700,000-acre expanse of public and private lands stretching across four counties—Ulster, Greene, Delaware, and Sullivan Counties—with endless forests, streams, reservoirs, and 350-miles of maintained trails. How much of it have you seen?

Every year, Lark offers 10 days of outdoor, nature-based workshops and group activities to get folks comfortable playing and exploring in the park. This year’s programming kicks off on September 30 and includes:

Catskill Mountain Club’s Annual Dinner

This year’s keystone event is the Catskill Mountain Club’s fundraiser dinner on October 8 at the Emerson Resort and Spa. Along with an educational talk about the DEC, you’ll have a chance to win a brand new kayak.
