MT. TREMPER – Officials broke ground on Monday for a new outdoor pavilion at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper.
The facility, to be funded by the state at a cost of $280,000, will add to the experience of visiting the center, said state Environmental Conservation Deputy Commissioner for Natural Resources Kathleen Moser.
“The pavilion will be for anyone who comes here – for picnickers, for educational programs and for people to start their Catskill adventure,” Moser said.
Since the interpretive center opened two years ago, it has played host to some 20,000 people.
