Are you on our Bucket List?

Here's your chance to commune with your very own sugar maple tree -- and enjoy its sweet, seasonal gift!

For a $25 donation to the Historical Society of Middletown, you can 'rent' a sap bucket to be hung on a tree in Steve and Jane Miller's Margaretville sugarbush. Come snap a selfie in the woods, watch sap transformed into syrup, enjoy a hot drink and take home an 8 oz bottle of freshly made maple syrup!

Fun for the whole family!

Reserve your bucket: [email protected].


This Weekend: January February March guided audio walks

"All sounds are sharper in winter." That quote, attributed to famed 19th-century naturalist John Burroughs, is how arts writer Jennifer Kabat begins her hour-and-a-half-long guided audio walk through the winter landscape of the Catskills. 

It's part of a project that Kabat, along with her collaborators, New Zealand artist Kate Newby, curator Tim Saltarelli and writer Anna Moschovakis, are calling the "January February March."

The project is part podcast, part art installation and part snowy winter ramble through two Delaware County towns: Middletown, near the center of the Catskill Park, and Hobart, the home of a large oxycodone factory and the "Hobart Book Village."  Read more

This Weekend: Valentine's Day in the Catskills

Above: Snowmen in love in Roxbury promote Sunday's Hearts in the Hamlet event, via Facebook.

Just when we desperately need a celebration to take the edge off the cabin fever and the late-winter blahs, here it is Valentine’s Day. What could be lovelier? In the Catskills, love is something that’s celebrated year round, but this weekend it’s the star of the show. Come out and create and play and feast and dance. All events are happening on Valentine's Day itself -- Saturday, Feb. 14 -- unless otherwise indicated.
