Posted on: July 8th, 2019 by Leslie_Zucker

Lis­ten to an audio record­ing of the Phoeni­cia Library Jerry Bartlett Angling Collection’s lat­est pro­gram on out­door guides of the Catskills called the “Adven­ture Experts.” The pro­gram fea­tures a pan­elist of local guides and an intro­duc­tion by AWSMP Stake­holder Coun­cil mem­ber Mark Loete. The pro­gram was devel­oped by Beth Water­man for the Phoeni­cia Library and recorded by Sil­ver Hol­low Audio.

Hear about the impor­tance of pro­tected nat­ural resources to the guid­ing indus­try, the his­tory of guid­ing, and what to look for in a guide for out­door adven­ture in the Ashokan water­shed and Catskills. Pan­elists include:

Will Soter, the co-founder of Upstate Adven­ture Guides
Hank Rope, owner of Big Indian Guide Ser­vice
Cliff Schwark, founder of the Catskill Mt. Chap­ter of Trout Unlim­ited
Patti Rudge, first woman to serve as full time NYS For­est Ranger

This event on May 11, 2019 was spon­sored by the Jerry Bartlett Angling Col­lec­tion and made pos­si­ble with funds from the Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Program.
