Catskill Visitor Use Survey Open Through March 19

Posted on: March 9th, 2021 by Brent Gotsch

The NYS Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion (NYSDEC) and the Catskill Advi­so­ry Group have devel­oped a sur­vey to help bet­ter deter­mine the cur­rent and future needs of the Catskill Park. The sur­vey seeks to deter­mine how peo­ple are cur­rent­ly using the Catskill Park and the chal­lenges that the region faces. Ques­tions con­cern­ing trail use, over­crowd­ing, park­ing, and access will help to deter­mine where need­ed invest­ment should be made. This includes stream access and recreation.

The Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram (AWSMP) requests every­one who lives in or vis­its the Water­shed take the sur­vey. This will help ensure that the need­ed invest­ments in tourism, eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment, and sus­tain­abil­i­ty are made so every­one in the region can ben­e­fit. The sur­vey is open through March 19.
