Join us for a bus tour that explores the landscape, history, and politics of the NYC water supply in the Catskills. The Catskills and NYC, 150 miles apart, are connected by water— the tour will follow the flows of their extraordinarily complicated relationship. We’ll hear stories of the water system from multiple perspectives of the people who live and work in it, and manage it.
The tour travels mostly along Route 28, visiting the Ashokan and Pepacton reservoirs and sites in between, including the Pepacton Cemetery and the banks of the Esopus Creek. The tour is led by watershed educator and artist Lize Mogel, along with local experts including local historians Diane Galusha and others.
