Naturalists

The natural beauty of the Kaaterskill Clove drew environmentalists and naturalists to study the landscape.

The Kaaterskill Clove was the perfect place for Naturalists such as John Burroughs to observe and learn about the natural landscape and wildlife that populated the Catskill Mountains. With several high peaks throughout the region, they were able sketch out and notate their observations to share their essays about nature with their peers.
