Join CMC Board Member Ann Roberti, as she leads a walk on the newly opened Palmer Hill Trail in Andes starting at 9AM. It’s a really special hike – glorious views, extensive stone walls and old foundations, and vast open sky — truly an unusual Catskill trail. The trail meanders through open meadows with beautiful views of forested lands, productive apple trees and historic stone walls and foundations. It passes over Bryant’s Brook and also features excellent views of many of the Catskill High Peaks, including Graham, Doubletop, Balsam Lake, Eagle, Balsam and the Dry Brook Ridge.

The Palmer Hill Trail consists of three segments ‐ a 0.6 mile route to the farmstead intersection and then a relatively easy 1.5 mile Lower Meadow Loop and a more strenuous 1 mile Upper Meadow Loop. We’ll just do the Upper Meadow Loop because of time constraints, but hikers are welcome to explore the Lower Meadow Loop on their own, or join in the Pepacton Reservoir Litter Pickup event that follows this hike.  Read more

To Be Forever Wild Screening - Oct. 4, 7 pm

October 4, 2014 - 7:00pm

7PM screening followed by Q and A with the filmmakers.

To Be Forever Wild is an hour-long documentary film created by a group of filmmakers, musicians and artists in the Catskill Mountains. The filmmakers spent several weeks exploring the Catskill Mountains, landscapes that are considered to be America’s “first wilderness.” The film profiles the people who live in and visit this region, including artists, hikers, scientists, farmers and young people.

The screening at the Open Eye Theater is one of a series of screenings planned around the Catskills and Hudson Valley. Director David Becker, crew members, and subjects of the film will be in attendance. To Be Forever Wild will premiere on PBS and will be released on DVD this August.

“In the film we see the power of nature to restore, reclaim and provoke our deepest emotions and connections to the world. It’s a film that inspires people to reconnect with nature in their own way, wherever they happen to be,” said director David Becker.  Read more

This weekend: The Margaretville Cauliflower Festival

The annual Cauliflower Festival celebrates the wonders of the palest cruciferous vegetable this Saturday in the Delaware County village of Margaretville, which was once the epicenter of the cauliflower growing industry in New York State. 

Munch on fried cauliflower and cauliflower soup, buy a bushel of cauliflowers, learn about the history of the cauliflower trade, and catch the popular tractor parade, in which area farmers will show off their finest agricultural vehicles and compete for a "Best in Show" trophy.

Kids' activities, folk and blues music, and vendors round out the festivities. Keep an eye out for exotic varieties of cauliflower, like the purple specimen above, which one local farmer brought to last year's festival. 

Margaretville Cauliflower Festival. Saturday, Sept. 27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tractor parade at 11:30 a.m. Village Park, Margaretville. cauliflowerfestival.com
