A Living Classroom
To inspire, conserve and protect:
Our most precious natural resource.
For the benefit of generations to come.
THE MISSION OF THE CATSKILL WATER DISCOVERY CENTER is to educate people of all ages about the precious nature of, and threats to our planet’s most vital resource — pure water.
Using the Catskill/Delaware Watershed as a living classroom, and the history and experience of those connected to this watershed, we will inspire people through programs, exhibits and events to care for, conserve and protect their water resources for the benefit of generations to come.
Trails in the CWDC's Nature Preserve will be constructed in 2024. Updates will periodically be found on this page. The Catskill Water Discovery Center669 Hwy 38, Suite 3 Arkville, NY 12406
