The trail system on the Preserve showcases a prime example of the mosaic of Catskill Mountain lands. Handmade stone walls that once lined likely Hardenburgh patent pastures now lay below stands of mature Beech trees, open fields give way to native blueberries, and suddenly you find a boulder – a gift from a glacier.
The Outdoor Art Program offers an alternative both to traditional art venues, and to formal methods of creating and presenting works to the public. The program invites multi-media artists to reflect on ecological issues, to consider the natural context of the land, and to experiment with non-traditional materials. The Outdoor Art Program provides professional opportunities for visual and performing artists, interpretive programs for the public, and arts-in-education programs for students.
