Two field outings will take place as part of Catskills Lark in the Park events during the first week of October in the Rondout Neversink watershed.
First, on Wednesday, October 7, weather station monitor Glenn Horton, of NYC DEP, will lead a hike to the weather station on Red Hill that he watches over with his team to calculate how much water each year's snow pack will produce for use in the reservoir system for New York City. The 2-mile hike is moderate to difficult and will require climbing steep pitches on a mountain hiking trail. Meeting time and place is 1:00 P.M. at Neversink Town Hall, 273 Main Street, Grahamsville, NY.
Friday, October 9 from 9 A.M. till Noon, the Rondout Neversink Stream Program team will guide a tour to three completed river restoration sites to explain the best management practices for dealing with stream bank erosion. Meeting time is 9:00 A.M. at Claryville Church Hall. We will encounter steep pitches and rough terrain so appropriate footwear is recommended.
