“Over 250 acres near the summit of Overlook Mountain in Woodstock became part of the Catskill Forest Preserve recently, with the completion of a long-planned purchase of two land parcels by the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) from the Open Space Institute (OSI).”

“This acquisition expands the Overlook Wild Forest and protects important habitat and watershed in the eastern Catskill Park,” said Kim Elliman, the president and CEO of the Open Space Institute. “Just as important, it permanently protects the magnificent views of Overlook Mountain from the Town of Woodstock and surrounding areas in the Hudson River Valley.”
