The New York State Department of Conservation has announced its partnership with Sullivan County to keep the Beaverkill Campground open for the 2009 season
Youngsville, NY – April 24, 2009 – Catskill Mountainkeeper applauds the NYS DEC’s decision to partner with Sullivan County to keep the Beaverkill Campground open during these tough budgetary times.
We would like to thank Commissioner Pete Grannis and Region Three Director Willie Janeway for their efforts on this important issue. Catskill Mountainkeeper organized a campaign to help keep the Beaverkill Campground open including an online petition that received more than 600 signatures in partnership with Friends of the Beaverkill, Roscoe Chamber of Commerce, Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce and the Sullivan County Visitors Association.
“This is how government should work” said Ramsay Adams, Executive Director of Catskill Mountainkeeper. “Community leaders organized a campaign; the County and State heard the call and worked hard to find a solution.”
Catskill Mountainkeeper would also like to thank Senator John Bonacic, Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther, Legislators Elwin Wood and Jonathan Rouis along with the rest of the County Legislators and Sullivan County Manager David Fanslau.
