Kids, local residents get a special welcome at Mohonk Preserve

Gardiner, New York, April 6, 2009 — To ring in spring and encourage more people to get outside, the Mohonk Preserve is offering special opportunities and activities for children and local residents to enjoy the land.
From Sunday, April 18 through Sunday, April 25, young visitors (along with their parents and other adult companions) are welcome to participate in the Preserve’s “Take a Child Outside Week,” a program underway nationwide to promote the exploration of nature and healthy family activities. Possibilities include taking a hike or bike ride on carriage roads and trails, looking for animal tracks, going on a scavenger hunt in the Discovery Forest, building a fort in the woods, and more.
Information and tips on activities are available at the Preserve Visitor Center and online at the events section of www.mohonkpreserve.org. Visitors during this week are invited to send in their favorite photos from their outdoor adventures to firstname.lastname@example.org; the best photo taker will win a one-year hiking membership for four people in their household. Looking ahead, the Preserve will also host a “No Child Left Inside” day on Saturday, June 5, with outdoor activities and music at Spring Farm.
“The Mohonk Preserve is a partner in the growing movement to get kids outdoors and more physically active,” says Kathy Ambrosini, Director of Education. “Being in nature is loads of fun, as well as being linked to improved concentration, observation skills, and overall well-being.”
Then on Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25, the Preserve will host Eleven Communities Appreciation Weekend. Held every spring and fall, this weekend offers free one-month memberships to visitors residing in the towns of Crawford, Gardiner, Marbletown, Montgomery, New Paltz, Rochester, Rosendale, Shawangunk, and Wawarsing, and the villages of Ellenville and New Paltz. The eleven communities are all part of the 85-mile Shawangunk Mountains Scenic Byway, a network of roads through areas recognized for their scenic, cultural, ecological, and economic importance for the broader region.
Visitors with proof of residency in the communities can obtain their free membership between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on either day at any trailhead, including the Visitor Center. (Visitors without proof of residency in one of the eleven towns must pay the standard $10 day use fee for hikers and bikers and $15 for climbers, or can purchase an annual membership starting at $55 for individuals.) Children 12 and under can visit the Preserve for free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are welcome, but must be on leash and under the owner’s control at all times.
“Visitors come from all over to enjoy the unique landscapes, scenic beauty, and top-notch recreation that the Preserve offers,” says Joe Alfano, Development Director at the Preserve. “This weekend is a way to thank those who are lucky enough to have the Preserve virtually in their backyards for their ongoing support.”

The Mohonk Preserve is the largest member- and visitor-supported nature preserve in New York State. Protecting and managing nearly 7,000 acres of the Shawangunk Ridge, the Preserve works to inspire people to care for, enjoy, and explore the natural world. Visitors are welcome on Preserve lands and at the Visitor Center, which has exhibits, trails, and a gift shop. Preserve lands are open sunrise to sunset every day, and a current membership or day entry pass is required to access the lands. Admission to the Visitor Center is always free.
